Reavis Creek Hike Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A fine backpack trip in the eastern Superstition Wilderness, this hike is a scenic loop around Iron and Mound Mountains through the highest portion of the Superstition Mountains. You’ll encounter stands of tall ponderosa pine, seasonal creeks, and several springs. The loop also traverses the headwaters of Campaign Creek and West Pinto Creek, two of the least visited areas of the wilderness.

Start by following the Reavis Ranch Trail down Rogers Canyon, heading northwest from the trailhead. Watch for Grave Canyon on the right, and make sure you follow the Reavis Ranch Trail (northeast up this side canyon). The Rogers Canyon Trail forks left and continues down the main canyon. This trail climbs steeply to the Reavis Saddle on the ridge northwest of Iron Mountain. Chaparral brush and pinyon-juniper forest are the dominant vegetation, but some nice groves of ponderosa pine also grow along the valley floor."
