Fall color on Parsons Trail, November 25, 2017. The trail starts at the end of Sycamore Canyon Road (Forest Road 131) and enters Sycamore Canyon Wilderness. Summer Spring and Parsons Spring feed Sycamore Creek, creating a lush riparian area. Sycamore, locust, cottonwood, and other leafy trees and plants put on a colorful show in late October to early November.


Sycamore Canyon is Arizona's second largest canyon. The Wilderness was Arizona's first designated Wilderness Area, originally set aside as a Primitive Area. Wilderness areas are set aside by an act of the U.S. Congress to preserve wild areas in their natural state in order to provide a primitive, natural experience and protect the beauty of these areas.
