We drove here in a Jeep Wrangler. Roads are a bit rough and narrow but good. The view at Sycamore Point is beautiful. A mini Grand Canyon with no crowds - we were the only ones there. The only downside was it started to rain...More
It is about a 2 hour round trip from Williams to Sycamore Point. The roads and very manageable, at least when we went. The one "stream crossing" was dry. Perhaps it would be a different story if you go after heavy rains.
The views from...More
We followed the advice of several others and got a guide to trails in the area from the NPS office, just outside Williams. The directions were easy to follow and necessary since the fire roads are not well marked (or just plain unmarked). We hiked...More
We packed a picnic and drove out to Sycamore Point, driving down the fire roads from Williams. The roads were in excellent condition, even though we took a four wheel drive vehicle, which was not needed. The canyon was beautiful, and we enjoyed our picnic...More
It's a good idea to stop at the Williams Ranger District Office for a free copy of the Motor Vehicle Use Map to find the trailhead for the Sycamore Rim Trail. We drove unpaved roads to a remote location, so I recommend taking necessary stuff...More
Just took the drive from Williams to Sycamore Point to see the vista, We used the directions from Google...which were not very accurate. Also the "What to do in Williams" free visitor magazine describes how to get there via County Road 141 and FS Road...More
Very nice area for hiking or sightseeing. Can be seen from in the Canyon or up above. Very scenic. Lighting for photos from the overlook best in the afternoon. Horseshoe and Dogtown Lakes in the same area on the way out. JD Dam also nice.
How Can I Find these PLACES on Big Sur? (1 Replies)
Hi. I will be driving NORTH from Cambria, and would like to stop at Partington Cove and Julie Pfeiffer State Beach. I have fairly good landmarks coming from the South, but I can not find and landmarks or markers in the northerly direction. Can anyone help with some landmark that lets me know when I am getting close to Partington Cove, and when I am close to Sycamore Canyon Road(J. Pfeiffer Stare Beach) coming from south(Cambria) to north(Carmel). I would really hate to miss them and...More

Sycamore Canyon in December last week (2 Replies)
Hello, We will be travelling as a couple from Sedona to Antelope Canyon and want to Visit Sycamore Canyon on the way. Is it advisable to visit in December last week? We only want to see the view of canyon and only want to do easy level of hiking. Which would be the best view point/lookout accessible with normal sedan? We are travelling from Kansas and are not familiar with the area. TIA.

Sycamore Canyon is a designated "wilderness" area, which means no developed roads or visitor services. There are no "drive by for a view" access points anywhere. There are hiking trails but they're accessed via Forest Service Roads and at elevations in the 7K feet range, they're not going to be approachable in late December. From Sedona, you can drive through Oak Creek Canyon via 89A to Flagstaff.

Oregon to San Diego and Back 2 weeks - possible or crazy? (5 Replies)
Hi is this trip feasible or too ambitious? I've put down places that I want to see beside the name of each town separating each portion of the trip w/ lines. I hope it makes sense. Would you be able to tell me whether this trip is realistic or whether I should take out certain stops? I'm not sure about Long Beach. I just put down a bunch of spots but most likely would only go to one or two on the way to San Diego. Thanks for your help! _________________________________________ Depart...More

Hi The part that isn't feasible to me is your accounting of time. Here is what I mean. -- Depart Oregon [10.5 hours drive] San Francisco: 3 nights 4 days --- Day 1 is 10.5 hours of driving, arriving in San Francisco for Night 1. Day 2 is SF, Night 2 is SF Day 3 is SF, Night 3 is SF That's the end of your three nights in SF. And you've only spent 2 days in the City. Even if you stay till dark on Day 4, you won't get 4 days in San Francisco. You need to account for travel...More
