This is a view of the ruins from Parson's trail near Cottonwood. We will be coming in from the other side of the mtn.  The ruins are just right of top center.

Thanks @Curly!!

 

Here's a great little page I stumbled across about the ruins. Great photos and story!

Ryan,  

You found a good site for AZ ruins.  

From the home page on that site I used #6 extensively a couple years ago when a friend and I were searching for hilltop forts in the area north of Phoenix.  We visited  the 4 that were talked about on the site as well as 4 others.

 

Do you plan to hike to the Sycamore Canyon ruins?

Planning to play it by ear based on the group and the temperatures at the time.

It's reportedly a strenuous, but short hike of about 1/2 mile with 350ft of elevation gain.

Good plan.

Many of the  forts we hiked to in the Tonto required at least some pretty tough bushwhacking.  
We did our hikes between Dec. and late March mostly to lessen the chance of a rattlesnake encounter.

 

I don’t know what the brush is like there but I do my bushwhacking in long pants and keep a pair of gloves handy.
I also always carry  hiking poles and make good use of them at least coming back down.

 

Those look like some great ruins!  I hope you get to see them up close.

Sycamore Canyon is also listed in this book I have.   I’d be happy to loan it to you or copy the 2 pages or......

Ive found the driving directions for in the book to be somewhat outdated for a couple of the hikes,  but the trail info is usually very accurate 

 

Just let me know
