Overview
White Horse Lake Campground is a nice little spot in the Kaibab National Forest and affords easy access to recreation around the upper Sycamore Canyon drainage. Two trails provide family-friendly hiking in the immediate area around the campground. These are the White Horse Lake Loop #33 and this trail, which is a spur off of the White Horse Lake Loop. The suggested starting point for this hike is the north side of the loop where plenty of parking in available.


Hike
Starting out on the White Horse Loop, you will have a view across White Horse Lake. Soon the trail turns north into the ponderosa pine forest. Within half a mile of starting on the White Horse Loop, you will arrive at trail junction with the Canyon Overlook Trail. From here, the trail dips down into a drainage that you'll see again at the end of the trail, and then The trail is fairly level with only a couple of real ups and downs. A few dead falls exist along the route, but nothing that presents a real challenge.

At roughly the 1 mile mark, the trail ends at the rim of Sycamore Canyon, with fine views down into the canyon. You can continue off trail to the east for a short ways along a peninsula of land between Sycamore Canyon and the small drainage (now a canyon) that you passed through earlier.
