Sycamore Falls and Rim Trail

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.”
