Sycamore Falls located at the headwaters of Sycamore Creek in the 55,937 acre Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, this is a special place. The ponderosa pine forest and canyon country are relatively durable environments, but water is scarce and spring run-off powers Sycamore Falls usually no later than April each year. From April through November, however, this becomes one of the most popular rock climbing areas in the southwest, known as “Paradise Forks.”

Sycamore Rim Trail is a 11.1 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Williams, Arizona that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.

The Sycamore Rim Trail was first proposed in 1975. Born of the idea that this environment of ponds, streams, cliffs and deep canyons was unique, and worthy of preservation in as nearly an undisturbed condition as possible, the trail was built to provide access to the area so people could enjoy it without impacting its scenic values. Its route was originally cleared and marked in 1979, when the trail was first opened for general use. Since then, this loop has been improved with treadwork over its entire length. The Sycamore Falls Trailhead was added during the summer of 1988 to accommodate hikers along the Sycamore Rim Trail and climbers using the Sycamore Falls area. The trail is open to mountain bikes outside the Wilderness boundary.

The trail forms a loop with access at several points along it. The southern and eastern portions of the loop follow the rim of Sycamore Canyon. The northern and western sections travel through ponderosa pine forests. The entire loop may be traveled from any of the trailheads, or hike a segment of the trail by shuttling between trailheads. Watch for rock cairns and small signs.
