Overview: From FR 421, the trail climbs steadily through lower Sonoran Desert and riparian vegetation up the arroyo formed by Sycamore Creek. It turns northward and continues to climb along a tributary, passing through chaparral, semi-desert grassland and juniper woodland. The trail tops out on the El Oso Divide and then descends to its end at Edwards Park in a stand of large Ponderosa Pines.

    To Denton Trailhead
    Take Hwy 87 North from Phoenix, turn south onto Hwy 188 and follow until 4.5 miles south of Punkin Center, then turn right onto FR 421 (gated). I only made it about a 1/4 mile in with my car before stopping. High-Clearance vehice could make it probably another mile. But to go all the way to the end would require 4WD.
