I decided to do this more than manageable day hike as a backpack with Jackie and the pups, as we only had about six hours of daylight to work with on Saturday and I really like the campsite at the bottom of Reavis Creek. Besides, a warm fire is more appealing after wading up stream to the falls than a nearly 7 mile hike out and I knew Jackie and the pups would love the more tame overnighter.

I was worried about heavy and slow traffic on the 88 with such a late Saturday start, however, we seemed to have the road to ourselves and all of the slower vehicles politely pulled over pretty quickly when we approached them. A few cars at the trailhead and one couple starting for a day hike of the falls. The road to the TH after you turn off from 88 is in great shape, with evidence of a very recent grading. No snow on the main trail, or the route, and aside from a few icy spots to contend with, the trail to the falls was in very good shape. It seems to only get better with each new year. Most of the drainages were still trickling and Lime Creek was flowing strong and making some modest thunders in its narrows just before it reaches Reavis Creek, which was also flowing well.

After setting up camp and prepping a fire for quick starting upon what we expected would be a cold return, we headed up stream. The hike up stream seems to get a little easier every year and I feel like the trails along the creek's benches have become more defined. Even with the higher water, we were able to make it to the falls with dry feet, well three dry feet anyways. The dogs had a couple of faster crossing to contend with and some precarious bypasses, but they excelled as usual. The falls were great and probably close to the fullest I have seen them and very scenic in its icy state. After snapping some photos and a quick break, it was back down stream to camp, which as is the norm seemed to go by much quicker than the trudge up.

A great night of star gazing, eating and enjoying a nice fire at camp. Then a lazy wake up and start Sunday morning for the hike out which was pretty standard, we passed two groups of hikers going to the falls on the way out and got lucky again with traffic on the 88 on the way out.

Some areas may simply never get old for me, just a very nice weekend, its always nice to show someone Reavis Falls for the first time.
