Plan about 6 hours for a leisurely dayhike from the Reavis Trough Trailhead to the Rogers Canyon Cliff Dwellings. This will allow you plenty of time to enjoy the awesome scenery and spend time reflecting on what life must have been like for the early inhabitants of this area. The road to the trailhead is a bit rough but one can get to about a mile from the trailhead in a two-wheel drive vehicle. There is a place to park at the base of a rather nasty hill. Reavis Trough Trailhead is at the end of FR172A.
