Started too late and didn’t have enough water to complete it. Nice views but it’s probably a better trail for the spring/fall weather. No shade!

This was my first ride at Sycamore Canyon. I am not very experienced not a pro but I am not an amateur either but I just don't do a lot of jumps and crazy trails but this place has so many options to ride and it's pretty easy a lot of different type of trials. You will find anything to fit your style a lot of fun!

Hit the south side of Sycamore Canyon on the JackIntheBox side of Allensanro and Barton. Man the runs are long and fun with some cool jumps and great rock trails and Boulders. Gotta Love Syc-amor Canyon. So many routes and trails.

Sycamore Canyon is sick with trails. It is a smorgasbord a different types of trails for different levels of riders. This trail I took was on the East and wrapped around back towards the middle of the Canyon with some nice whips and good climbs with great shoots. Love Riversides Sycamore Canyon always a bunch of different fun trails.

wide open, dirt trails, watchout with rattlers and dont venture off trail too much and watch where you step. 4 or 5 entrances to choose from.

This is a pretty difficult trail mountain biking. I hit this trail going up the Hill past the nature center and came back around and it's got some pretty tough trails enjoyed it though and really love the zoom trail right past the homes on the left.

Car was broken into at the main parking lot sometime between 6-6:40pm on May 8. Heard from locals that there have been many break ins lately. If you’re still willing, I’d probably park at Sycamore Highland Park and start from there.

Completed 18 miles. From the Barton trail head it was downhill and beautiful. Easy. Took us to a creek that we had food at. We went all the way to the Trail Head at Central and enjoyed wonderful views. Colorful flowers, a rattlesnake, hawks, tons of crows the size of monster ravens, a roadrunner, a white owl (amazing!), and a few jackrabbits. So that was chill and went by fast. Ooooops. Hard and more than moderate on the 1 or 2 mile hike to get out of that trail. Mellow for awhile as went toward the Via Vista trailhead. A big climb to get up there for a reminder of the gorgeous views and what we had hiked and then a nice climb back to Barton. Overall a great experience. The weather was great and we had a ton of water and food. If it’s hot this could be brutal as the existence of trees and shade is minimum.

Nice trail. I would say easy trail not moderate one. No trade, beautiful view with flower. Bring a lot of water and enjoy the trail. Spent almost two hours for the first time there.
