The 4-mile easy hike up the Parsons Spring Trail, is along a desert stream in magnificent Sycamore Canyon. The trail leads through the lower reaches of this wilderness through a riparian area rich in plant and animal life. Colorful cliffs that are a unique mix of dark columnar basalt, red sandstone, and buff colored limestone enclose the lush green of the oasis.
The trail leads to a large pool called Parson Springs. The limestone layer just above the streambed has small caves. At some points, additional springs flow from the canyon walls through gardens of columbine and watercress. All these features combine to make this trail one of the most popular, and one of the most crowded.
