Looking for a new place (new to me) to explore and decided to poke around in the hills along the north Reavis Ranch Trail, #109. At 2+ hours one way, it's a long drive for a day hike but I decided to go check it out anyway. I left early enough to get a photo of the sunrise over Canyon Lake on the way to the trailhead. The gravel section of HW 88 was in good shape, recently graded, as was FR 212 to the trailhead. Got a few nice scenery photos despite the haze, saw some interesting stuff and about a dozen Coues white tailed deer but never saw another person all day. Went off trail part way down into Reavis Canyon and had a tough hike back up on the return. The thick bunch grass was tangling up my feet on every step and my energy level plummeted for about an hour due to eating lunch before starting the ascent. Have to remember not to eat until it's all downhill. Once hitting the trail I put it into cruise control and got back to the TH by 3:00 pm, plenty of time to get home for dinner.
