Explore Riverside: Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Park

By
Real Estate Agent with Trademark Realtors

 Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Park is the largest reserve of open space in the City of Riverside.  There are many trails throughout the park and it is a great place to go walking, running or mountain biking--and you can bring your dog too!  This is a great day-hike destination for the whole family.

We have explored some of the trails off of the main trailhead and it's a lot of fun and also a great workout.  The trails are dirt and rock and some of the hills are steep.  Approximately 3.5 miles of the main trail has been cut and filled with sand.  It is approximately 13.5 miles around the perimeter of the park and most of the park is undeveloped.  Within the boundaries of the park you will find an abundance of desert plant and animal life.

 

The park is a fun place with many trails to explore, but it can also be dangerous.  It is important to pay attention to your surroundings and respect the wildlife in the park.  Be sure to walk with a companion, stay on marked trails, wear shoes with good traction, bring water, and keep your dog on a leash at all times. 

                                                

 Don't forget to bring your camera, too!
