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

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.

nice trail but maybe for a little older kids. 5 and up would make it easier than 3 and 4s.

This was an absolutely beautiful place. So green. It was totally fine for my 6 and 9 year olds to complete. However, we only made it half way to the falls with our 1 and 3 year olds.
