Sycamore Canyon Trail is a 3.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Whittier, CA that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Good beginner trail for the kiddos
great trail. go to the right at the end for an amazing uphill finish. first half is easy, good warm up.
Easy trail with a few mild hills. Not too strenuous. Good for beginners and kids. Beware of coyote scat all over the trail, though. If you are quiet and careful enough you may even see a few deer like I did today!
My kids and I had a great time. We got to see squirrels, birds, lizards, beetles and one snake and we heard frogs down by the water. Very easy. My kids are 5, 8, 10 and we went to end and back in about 1 hr 45 min.
Nice trail. Deer rabbits and birds. Watch for irresponsible pet owners on this No Dogs trail.
Great hike to get back into the game after not having been for a long time! I Definitely recommend this trail
No dogs allowed!!!!
Great "starter hike" for testing gear and young kids. Whittier Audubon hosts bird walks here on a regular basis as well. Note: no bikes or dogs allowed on this trail.
Nice but very short trail.
The hike was good, but unfortunately our over all experience was ruined when we got back to the parking area. My car was broken into in the parking lot during our hike at Sycamore Trail. Beware when you hike in this area!
Great trails limited parking lots of deer in the morning.
Hot weekend. Saw a big rattler on our way out. Water present in the stream. Great views at the top!!
It was a very nice hike! A lot do! I will go back :)
Nice hike, pretty easy until the last quarter mile at which point you hit a dozen or so switchbacks up the mountain. Trail ends at Rattlesnake Trail at the top of the mountain. Great views from up there!
Great uncrowded low key hike. Meets up with a couple of other trails, "dark canyon" and "rattlesnake"..... and also can get you to the Buddhist Columbarium if you continue on the trail------ a couple of cool hidden side excursions to find as well...... a nice stream flowing is an added bonus. Some really nice oak trees once you get deeper into the canyon. Minimal trash is also a plus.
I really like the trail. However when you make it to the top you have to be careful with the mountain bikers.
The flat portion of this trail is easy. But you turn right at the post near the end and head all the way up to the rattlesnake and over to the water tower it is a good workout. Lots of ways to go once u get up to the top. Not easy at all if you do the hill going up.
