Sycamore Canyon Park

Average Rating:    (4.32 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 19

There are nearly infinite variations on how to ride this park. Trails are mostly singletrack with a few fireroads. There is plenty of climbing for you XC guys, and the decents are plentiful and way to much fun! Most people can put together 15-20 mile rides with very little if any trail overlap.

Summary:
This is mainly an XC type trail - meaning for all that smooth rolling singletrack, there is a climbing price to pay. The climbs are short, but brutally steep. And, there is LOTS of them too. Bring all the water you can carry, if doing the full, 17-mile tour, because you will drink all of it and then some!

Don't even think about riding this in the hot summer months, as there is literally zero shade on this entire network; your rotting corpse will not be found until November.

Recommended Route:
Park Central Avenue trailhead and take Farside all the way along the Eastern perimeter, past the Pepsi plant, Ralph's Distribution Center, etc. Explore "mini Moab boulders and follow along the telephone poles(DH) and hang left behind Canyon Crest back yards. Climb another hill and go east towards boundry fire road and north center all the way back up to your car.

Summary:
Wow just rode this for the first time and I must say it has something for everyone. Awesome single track, nice sweeping fire roads, killer rock drop-offs, and great switch backs. It was great to see other riders (very friendly) having a great time and there is plenty of room for everyone. You can see trails for miles and I was salivating at what this place had to offer. I will be making it a regular ride.

Summary:
Shoot the last review was in 2004, this is a great set of trails, perfect for Singlspeeding I ride here multiple time per week 99% of the time singlspeeding. Great for newbies certain sections but also for experienced riders. You have downhills, singletrack and great climbing.

Summary:
I rode here for the first time today. I parked at #2 (on Central) and rode along the east boundry toward the south end of the park all the way to the gas station. I was out by my self so I don't know any of the trails by name. I fond a nice trail on my way back that was rolling in the bottom of a canyon. It had some rock drops from a few inches to one that is 5 or 6 feet. As I started to head back toward the trail I came in on I came to a stream crossing with a big gas pipe across it. I figured I better leave that one for a day when I have someone there to haul me out. At the end of my ride I came out a little west of the parking area and dropped into some appartments or condos. I found my way through there and hit Central back to the parking area. In all a good afterwork or short day ride. My loop was about 10 miles total. It's a good place for XC or freeriding but it didn't look like a good place to shuttle for downhill runs.

Recommended Route:
I liked starting from Central so the majority of the first half of your ride is uphill. That leaves more downhill for on the way back.
