This is definitely not an easy hike. At best, I’d call it moderate due to the incline.
Beautiful vistas and lots of lizards. Highly recommended.

Still has beautiful wild flowers!

Nice trails to do trail running. My friend and i went from walking at a steady pace to pushing ourselves on some of the steep hills. Great workout! Saw a few snakes along the way, but not to close to the trail itself. There is no, no , NO SHADE. So be prepared w/ SPF, a hat, and plenty of water!

Squirrels. Many beautiful trees and plants. A few homeless people. Very nice looking park

Great park. Basketball, baseball, picnic , and trains

Took my littles, 4 and 7 on this hike for the first time today. It was BEAUTIFUL!! There was a steady flow of people but everyone was very considerate to those around them. The kids were so excited when they made it to the cross!! We will definitely be back.

its really fun but watch for rattle snake just went today 4/22/18 and ran into 2 4 ft rattle snakes but other than that its fun to hike or bike.

Great safe walk with family or challenge yourself and run up the back side!

It was a beautiful day to hike Sycamore Canyon. However it's that time of year and we came across a couple snakes.

This is always going to be favorite “go to” trail. I love the view and the length and variety that this trail has to offer. Free convenient parking is a short walking distance from the base of the trail on either the street or at the park. It’s also a perfect trail for strollers, dogs leashed, even children. Great trail the whole family can enjoy. Watch out for little critters passing by (just like you would encounter on any nature walk). Make sure to wear a hat and bring lots of water during the summer months because there isn’t a whole lot of shade. The trail can take anywhere from 1-1.5 hours depending on if you do the entire trail or just the quick loop around. As long as you’re staying on the designated paths provided, you’re sure to enjoy a safe and fun exercise :)

For my first time hiking this trail kicked my ass all the way up the hill. It was a great workout. When you reach the top youll see that there are other trails! Be careful for snakes. Its getting warmer and they like to lay in the trail. First time i went was 4/7/18 and a rattle snake was laying in the middle of the trail.
The second time 4/15/18 and came across a smaller snake also laying in the trail.

good for family. has nice views of the city.

I really enjoyed this hike! Its not much in the way of elevation and scenicly (is that even a word) its ok but it is a really nice getaway from the rigors of day to day life. I definitely recommend it!

Love going before the sunrise, the view is unbelievable.

Hiked up here on a beautiful morning. Great hike for beginners but I chose to scale some rocks up near the top as well. Architecture of the place is reminiscent of Old California. Missions and the like. Great hike and can’t say enough about the views from all angles of this trail.

Great for a quick workout. You can walk the trail or hike up the side trails. It gets busy with a lot of people depending on the time of day. I usually night hike which makes it a lot better to breathe.

Nice trail with great views, my kids love it!

Beautiful view and a great place to take your kids. My 5 and 4 year old enjoyed it.

Great area!

Was a very nice trail! Great view, high traffic! Lots of dog walkers. At the top is a great area to take a break and relax. Was a fun hike!

Kids love this place. Big cross on top of the mountain can’t get any better.
