Mountain Biking Sycamore Trail #68
#236 of 401 mountain bike trails in Arizona
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.
Nice vistas of Tonto Basin and the surrounding mountains. At the upper elevations, the trail passes through a beautiful stand of Ponderosa pine forest. Portions of trail are quite rugged, overgrown, and difficult to follow. Travel with caution. Difficulty: more difficult. source: fs.usda.gov
