This was my second trip here. I came with my 3 boys yesterday (ages 15, 11 & 6). They loved it! It's not hard, however we did not go up the mountain on Sycamore and continued on Dark Canyon instead. It's a nice workout still but will have to make that trip up the mountain myself soon. For the last 3 weeks, I had been walking inside Rose Hills cemetery and even though I love it there, Sycamore is my new favorite. Except for the poop here and there, it's great! It's very peaceful here!

Great workout. Very nice trail. Good elevation gain.

We drove around for 10 minutes and still couldn't find the entrance. Never going to this cemetery again.

Get there early! Arrived at 0545 on a Friday and lot was 95% full. Moderate trafficked trail up and back to water tower lookout. Pleasant morning views of dew/fog lifting and sunrise. However, I could do without other hikers playing music on their walks...unplug, breathe, listen to your heart beating and enjoy your surroundings. It's been a year since my last hike (out of shape) and I felt this was easily doable. I'll probably do again.
