Yesterday I met Johnlp up by Williams as he was making his way back from dropping off is Son in Vegas. I have a bunch of trails all over the state that I am working on so this worked out great. We coordinated and met up at the Sycamore Rim Trailhead and headed out.

About a half mile in John realized he had left his GPS sitting on top of his car. He had already done a hike earlier in the morning so I volunteered to shoot back and get it. I figured I needed to do some catching up anyway. Once back in action we made our way around the loop in a counter clockwise direction. It didn't take long for us to see several pools of water along the trail. Then we approached the Canyon and walked along side it for quite a distance. Wow it is beautiful to say the least. A bit further and we came to Sycamore Falls which I bet is AMAZING when the water is flowing over the edge. There were a group of people with a rope strung across the canyon. At first I thought they were using it as a sort of zip line to get across. Nope, off in the distance on the other side they had another rope tied between two trees and they were practicing tight rope walking. One guy was really good. After a bit of circus watching we continued on. More pools/tanks and then eventually a nice steady incline up KA Hill. Off in the distance we could see Kendrick and the San Francisco Range.

We worked our way on down to the Old Sawmill site. It is almost non-existent and is working its way back into the earth as is the Cabin site just down the way and the old Rail Road Ties.

All in all this was a really great, diverse hike that I would love to do again especially if it were closer to home. Johnlp thanks for meeting me. Had a really nice hike. Oh and by the way the dirt roads going into this one are in REALLY great shape. No worries for a passenger car.
