Sycamore Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This longer loop at Umstead State Park takes you into the relatively remote heart of the park, where miles of streamside scenery present beauty in every season. Start at a fine picnic area then cross Potts Branch, with beauty of its own.

Roll over hilly, rich woods then drop into Sycamore Creek. Enjoy everywhere-you-look streamside splendor, from wildflowers to rocky bluffs, deep pools, and dancing rapids. Follow the stream for miles before looping up a tributary. The last part of the circuit is a backtrack."
