Description

After parking at the Big Sycamore Canyon Campground you can run through the site toward the north to reach a yellow gate at the edge of a fire road, which serves as the trailhead for the Sycamore Canyon Trail. From here, follow the trail up the canyon along the creek. You'll pass by a turnoff for the Scenic Trail, continue along the Sycamore Canyon Trail. You'll come across another junction with the Overlook Trail 4/10 of a mile from the trailhead. Again, follow Sycamore Canyon.

Following the trail for another 7/10 of a mile along the relatively flat path you'll come to a juncture with the Serrano Canyon Trail. Pass this turn off and run a mile further to reach a picnicking spot along the trail, complete with a picnic table shaded by the trees. Some runners may want to turn around here to head back to the trailhead. If you wish to continue along the trail, run briefly until you arrive at a junction with the Backbone Trail. At this point the Sycamore Canyon Trail ends and you can return back the way you came or join up with others trails to loop around.
