Sycamore Canyon is the second largest canyon in the Arizona redrock country, after Oak Creek Canyon. The 21mi long scenic canyon reaches a maximum width of about. It is in North Central Arizona below the Mogollon Rim west and northwest of Sedona in Yavapai and Coconino counties.DescriptionSycamore Creek, a tributary of the Verde River, flows though the canyon. Sycamore Canyon enters the Verde River canyon 6.5mi north-northwest of Clarkdale.Located within three different U.S. National Forests, the Coconino, Kaibab, and Prescott National Forests, Sycamore Canyon is home to a variety of wildlife including black bear, deer, and mountain lion. Unlike the nearby and more heavily visited Oak Creek Canyon, much of Sycamore Canyon is protected by the 56000acre Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, located at, and therefore roads and developed campgrounds are nonexistent. Hiking and horseback riding are the only ways to visit the canyon. The most popular access is via the Parsons Spring trail, upriver from Tuzigoot National Monument. A high clearance vehicle is helpful to reach the trailhead.
