Last weekend we were in Reavis with good group of Hazers but Kathy was under the weather so was robbed of Supes Reavis overnight. So we decided to make another trip but this time camping in Campaign Creek and backpacking the loop instead of day hiking. Starting from the Campaign Creek TH we headed to Reavis Gap Trail about 1 mile in and then began the ascent of that trail. Very rough rocky trail but it's easy to follow all the way to the gap which is also the junction with AZT and Two Bar Ridge trail. Took short break here and then quick run over to Walnut spring to check things out which had reliable water as usual. Then back to the gap and hiked down to Pine Creek. Was surprised to see that there was almost no water in Pine except for very small pool.

Continuing on up to the pass between Pine and Reavis we then dropped into the valley. The view of Reavis hiking in from the pass never disappoints with excellent views all the way down. Once in Reavis we took our time in the meadows and orchard as we made our way towards the Fireline junction. At the Fireline junction filled up on water in particular because I was told that Campaign Creek at our camp spot would be dry. So I filled up about 8 litres of water to be sure we had enough. On the way through Reavis we passed several tent camps and also groups of hikers on the trail coming back from Mound or Circlestone. However, our goal was to reach the Fireline Campaign trail junction the camp for the night. Finally passed Circlestone turnoff and after that it's less steep and easier walking over to the saddle above Campaign. Reaching the saddle we quickly descended into Campaign and made camp by 430. Great night around the fire in Campaign Creek with no sign any other hikers.

Next morning we took leisurely time getting ready and didn't start hiking until 945. It's little over 5 miles out so we didn't have a long hike...still some color in Campaign Creek especially the sycamore trees. Some water intermittently along the creek and flowing down towards the TH. Didn't see a soul all weekend except the short stretch in Reavis.
