The northern and western sections of this loop travel through
ponderosa pine forests, first ascending to a ridgeline and then
descending to Sycamore Falls, a 100-foot drop which, with the

There may also be five or six small waterfalls along the way.
The southern and eastern portions of the loop follow the scenic
rim of Sycamore Canyon. See
