Sycamore Canyon Hike

IMG_0607The 5-mile hiking loop in the Claremont Wilderness Park is extremely popular, and on weekends it is nearly impossible to get a parking space within a half-mile of the trailhead. Sometimes we opt for the shorter, but steeper, Sycamore Canyon Trail. Before the rain headed in, we spent an hour on the loop – almost 2 miles, and, according to my flight counter on my phone, it was 47 stories of up. That definitely skewed my daily average for the week. We saw about 6-8 people on the trail itself, although many people were enjoying the day along the flatter Thompson Creek Trail and Higgenbothem Park.

The gorgeous clouds made picture-taking easy.

  1. Thanks for once again enabling me to hike with you all on the Sycamore Canyon Trail. That is not something that either Butch or I would do, so I’ll enjoy your pictures and your description of your hike. Happy Thanksgiving to you and H. No doubt you’ll be spending the day with your family and friends.
