1st trip
the eastern supes have been on my radar since our backpack to reavis ranch last year
noticed that ray (and others) have been doing some cool hikes out that way, so i cold-called him for a hike
he had in mind this loop, which is a good long intro to and sampler of the east side
his silver bullet easily made it to the trailhead, and it was about 30 degrees when we set out on campaign trail
after reading about the climb up fireline, we did the loop counterclockwise, taking reavis gap trail at about a mile and a quarter in
sustained and at times steep climb up to reavis gap/two bar ridge
great views from there, with grassy terrain, rocky outcroppings, lots of landmarks i've yet to learn the names of
a gentle descent and another climb to the point where reavis ranch is visible, simply an amazing view
we took a short snack break somewhere in there, ray sharing half of his sandwich
familiar ground on a short section of reavis gap, the piece through reavis ranch, and fireline up to the circlestone
turnoff
we considered going up to circlestone, but both felt that was pushing it so we continued along fireline
ray says he'll be back :)
found the steep drop into campaign creek, had lunch toward the end of fireline, and eventually hit the intersection with campaign trail
while very pretty with the almost bare sycamores, the creek crossings made for more difficult travel
we got off trail a couple of times even with cairns at each crossing
oh, and i blew one of the later crossings, dunking a foot; never my strong suit
there was quite of bit of bear scat through here
closed the loop and finished above reavis mountain school, enjoying late fall color and lush vegetation in the creek, which held quite a bit of water on the eastern end
great hike and i'd do it again but clockwise, to see the views going the other way
excellent choice ray, even with a long drive and a committing hike with someone you've never met before :lol:
we did quite well together and even felt like having dinner at guayo's on the way into globe
thanks for agreeing to a hike, for driving and for the chocolate milk/pringle's combo as a post-hike snack
enjoyed the hike and your company :)
