When you arrive at the Sycamore Grove Park parking lot, you will begin your stroll on the main trail which is a mixture a paved asphalt and dirt terrain that crosses through preserved grasslands. The landscape varies drastically in the summer versus in the cooler seasons, when wildflowers blossom and when the ground is less dry, and the heat less oppressive. Nevertheless, expect little to no shade, apart from the random patches of sycamore and walnut trees. As you'll see, the trail meanders evenly throughout the grasslands, without much distraction. All amenities, such as picnic table and restrooms, are located at the entrance of the park.
The Sycamore Grove Park Trail is just one of the many trails which you can enjoy. While on your hike, you'll see oppawtunities to diverge from the main path to explore many of the other more rugged trails that wind through the valley; feel free to do so, but beware this will lengthen the mileage of your trip. Bikes and horses often make use of this trail, among others, but signs will indicate hike-only, or bike and equestrian trails.
Since there is a risk of wildfire, in addition to abundant wildlife, please keep your dog on a leash at all times. Also, remember to remove any dog waste from the park as you leave. No potty bags are available along the trail so it's wise to bring a couple of your own. Most of all, enjoy your walk, run, or stroll on the Sycamore Grove Park Trail with your explorer pup!
