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

Really pretty, everything is green and beautiful. When you reach the creek don't be mistaken! It's not the waterfalls, keep going and eventually you'll be lead straight to the falls.

I hiked this trail today for the first time in several years. This was the first time I've ever been here when there was no water coming down the falls! It was still a good hike but probably should be rated moderate instead of easy.
