The Sycamore Rim Trail is an 11 mile loop that runs along the rim of Sycamore Canyon.  The trail is mostly flat with one little “bump” at the beginning. The trail is well maintained and will take us through nicely forested areas, past ponds of Lilly Pads, old cabins, clear streams and steep walled canyons.  We may even see a rock climber or two.  This is a really pretty hike with great photo opportunities.  We will be leaving the valley Saturday morning and heading to the trailhead. 

Post hike: there is an optional car camp for those who are in no hurry to head back to 100+ degrees.  We will be camping in the forest, enjoying the cool temps in the pines.  Sycamore Canyon is located in the Kaibab National Forest south of Williams AZ.

    Phil led a terrific hike! The weather was exemplary and the camping was second-to-none - we got in a little 4x4 mud-boggin' Whoo - Hooo

    Thanks Phil!!

    A beautiful hike with lots of water crossing, deep canyon views and shaded forests. I'd rate it more moderate. Great day. Thank you Phil for organizing.
