The hike will begin by crossing under Hiway 1 via a tunnel, followed by a stroll through the Big Sycamore Canyon Campground. We’ll then follow the nearly level Big Sycamore Canyon Fire Road one mile to the junction with the Serrano Canyon Trail. Our route will then head east through the partially shaded canyon to Serrano Valley where we’ll hike in a clockwise loop around the valley. There’s poison oak along the trail in Serrano Canyon so, please be advised.
NOTE: There is a parking fee at the trailhead. Each car must pay about $12.00
