With the temps starting to get up there I wanted to get out to the eastern Superstitions and get in a big hike before the season ends for me. Headed out to the Campaign TH and started up Campaign Creek. Lots of running water in the creek all the way up to Brushy Spring. Made it to the Fireline Junction and had a nice break under the pine trees. About 3/4 of the way up Fireline the trail became washed out and I lost track of it, so I started up a steep wash. The climb up this part was nearly vertical at times climbing up an all rocky section. As I got near the top, I decided to take a small ravine up to finish off this stretch which turned out to be the wrong decision. As I was climbing up this ravine a tree root that I was using for footing, broke and I slid on my stomach about 30 feet down the side, fortunately landing on my feet (lesson learned). After quickly evaluating myself I continued up the rocky ravine finally cutting over successfully near the top. Fantastic views on top and happy to say the pine forest at the bottom of pine creek all survived the fire. Headed down to Pine Creek to start this section. I had read Chumley's, Wally's and Dixieflyer's triplog on the old Pine Creek Trail and thought I would give it a shot. Yeahhhh, this 2 miles section took me over 2 hours hunting for cairns and bushwhacking through thick Manzanita. I would find a cairn that would lead into a grove of manzanita and then I would have to try to find the tread again. I finally linked up with the Reavis Gap Trail and started the long trek down. Ran out of water about half way down Reavis Gap, fortunately was able to filter some once I got back to Campaign Creek. Long, exhausting 11 hour day finishing the last mile in the dark (headlamp). You would never know you were in the Superstitions in the Pine Creek area. It is a forest full of tall pines and TONS of bear scat. I definitely need to head out there again and camp.
