This is another long overland style trip to whet your taste for adventure. One of the most scenic and popular wilderness areas within Arizona is the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, with its striking red rock canyons and mountains. Although there are more than 70 places with the name Sycamore in Arizona alone,
Sycamore Canyon near Sedona is probably the best known. The canyon is 25 miles long and up to 7 miles across at its widest point. Scattered throughout are many cliff dwellings left behind by early Indians.
This trail leaves Perkinsville Road in the Prescott National Forest to travel a roughly graded , single-track trail toward the Sycamore Wilderness Boundary. The trail winds through the pinyon/juniper forest, crossing through a number of small canyons. The red bluffs of Sycamore Canyon come into view as the trail passes an old cabin. The trail ends at the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness boundary.
