A wilderness route along a permanent stream that penetrates the Pajarita Mountains. This wilderness route follows Sycamore Canyon downstream into the heart of the Pajarita Wilderness. It involves travel along gravel bars and frequent crossings of a permanent stream. A little rock scrambling may be required in some tight spots for travelers who want to keep their feet dry; this route does place a premium on agility. Clumsier hikers need not worry, however. They can always slog through the water when the going gets tricky.
