We parked a vehicle at Sycamore Reservoir TH and then drove back down to Bear Canyon TH to start the hike. A few pools in lower Bear and the usual crowd heading to Seven Falls. Continued on past Seven Falls and found some good water and pools with some sections still flowing. Had lunch and a beverage at one of the bigger pools before heading up canyon. Final break near water and then up the trail over the ridge into the Sycamore basin. Near the top the trail makes it's way to a saddle overlooking Sabino Canyon...interesting view of the whole Sabino basin from there. Then we headed down through Sycamore basin to the reservoir dam site. Nice hike through there with some fall color still hanging on and some water flowing over the dam. Cool to see the dam...lots of large cottonwoods and sycamores at the site :) From there just a short 2 miles to Sycamore Reservoir TH.
