This is a fine hike through the remote red-rock canyons of the Sycamore Canyon and Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wildernesses. Taylor Cabin is an historic cowboy cabin built up against the side of a rock.
The Dogie Trail, which we will use on the way in, offers hikers a chance to experience one of Arizona's spectacuns without all of the crowds. If solitude is what you seek, this could be the trail for you. The trail descends into the heart of the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness.
For those who long for rugged beauty unspoiled and untamed by man, Sycamore Canyon is one of the few places in the southwest that can lay claim to such a lack of man's accomplishments.
Javalina, deer, quail, and numerous other animals call this country home. Pinyon pine, juniper, Arizona cypress, brush fields and wildflowers are abundant.
