    An enjoyable hike. I did it clockwise from the Sycamore Falls trailhead, doing the climb up KA hill fairly early. I started at 4:45 am to avoid the heat of the day. I was lucky enough to see a coyote near the old sawmill site. Sycamore Falls was dry, but there was water in Pomeroy Tanks and in the marshes and pools near LO Spring.
