Overview: Yew Thicket Trail #52 starts on the Kaibab National Forest in open stands of ponderosa pine and pinyon-juniper woodland. This portion of the trail follows an old road bed across the canyon rim. At its junction with Lonesome Pocket Trail #61, this trail narrows to a footpath. Here the trail is at its most scenic, as well as its most difficult, as it descends a steep canyon through red rock bluffs. Yew Thicket Trail #52 continues southwest along a side canyon as it approaches its end at Sycamore Basin Trail #63. Trail #63 is the main thoroughfare through the 55,000-acre Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, and presents excellent opportunities for backpacking in this rugged, remote area.
