Views of Boney Mountain, waterfall, deep canyon walls This hike includes breathtaking views of Old Boney Mountain as you leave Satwiwa cultural center area and a pleasant hike down into the steep Sycamore Canyon. The waterfall at the hikes half way point is this highlight. The waterfall is almost 100 foot high and consists of a number of cascades that tumble over shear rock when water flow is high enough. This is a rather spectacular and secluded area. There is a big flat topped boulder that you can sit on to have lunch and watch the waterfall. Watch out for the poison oak near the waterfall as the area is covered with it! $12 Parking Fee

Hiked to the non existent waterfall today. It was NOT an easy hike. A few sections were easy but most of the hike traversed somewhat steep inclines. Bring more than one water bottle. You'll probably need at least two water bottles for the round trip.

Nonetheless, the hike provides views of beautiful rolling hills and forested ravines.

I quickly came to realize the importance of being able to read a map because I turned a 3 mile easy hike into an 8 mile moderate to difficult hike. However, it was well worth it! As you can tell from my photos, there was plenty to see.
