This was a fairly easy hike, but with VERY little shade making for a long, hot day!! I took 2.5L of water and ran out the last 1.5 miles... Should have taken the full 3L. Maybe it would be more enjoyable further into the fall.
Solid hike in Sycamore Canyon, 5.4 miles to river bed, total of ~11. Moderate. Take 89a to 525c and stay on it until the end- dirt roads but well maintained for the most part, any vehicle can make it to the parking area. Recommended if you want a canyon to yourself!
