Joel and I made plans to hike to Circlestone today from Roger's Trough and we knew it was going to be a long one-- well, it turned into a really long one.

I'd never hiked out of this TH before so I was pretty excited for the whole hike. This section of the Reavis Trail is much more scenic than coming from the northern TH. We made great time today and got to Circlestone pretty early. From the beginning of the Fireline Trail all the way to Circlestone is pretty consistently steep. Circlestone has been on my list of places to check out for a long time so I was stoked to do this one and it doesn't disappoint.

We headed back down and since Joel has a thing for ruins and dwellings, we took off for some off trail exploration. We climbed up above the Fireline Trail and did some inspecting of some of the alcoves and headed to the top of the bluffs. It wasn't that bad of a bushwack.

We worked our way back down to the trail and discussed checking out the ruins in Rogers Canyon on our way back since I'd never been down there before. This would extend our hike into some crazy long mileage-- a good bit more than my longest day. We decided we'd see how we felt once we got to the intersection with that trail. We were feeling good and there was an exchange of "I'll do it if you will!" So we added on some miles. Rogers Canyon is beautiful and the dwelling are really interesting except for the destruction that's been caused by idiot visitors.

We made our way back. By the end of this one, I was really feeling the mileage. I wasn't really too sore-- just plain tired but felt good. We got to the TH at about 7am and left about 7pm. It was awesome and I'm happy I was able to knock out this kind of mileage in a day. That whole route is worth doing-- nothin' but beautiful country. Lots of water along the Reavis Trail.
