Sycamore Canyon Trails

Sycamore Canyon is located in Corona de Tucson. As the Sycamore Canyon community website states, it’s “a world apart, yet accessible to everything.” Here’s what that means.

The Demographics

Before we dive into what it looks like to live in the community, let’s take a closer look at the people who live in this neighborhood.

Sycamore Canyon strives to foster a strong family environment. That’s done both with younger families with school-aged children and older generations who choose to retire in this area or live here during the warm winter months. The median age of people living in and around this community is 33.5 years of age. The median household income is $88,947.

The Housing

There are a variety of neighborhoods scattered throughout the Sycamore Canyon community. The homes built in this area were constructed by some of the regions top builders, including Heritage, Canoa, DR Horton, Pepper Viner and the newest developer, Richmond American Homes. The home’s were designed with the landscape in mind. The colors, architecture, and community public art are all representative of the Southwest styles and culture.

The Schools

Sycamore Canyon is located in the Vail School District, a top rated school district nationwide. There are schools that serve all grade levels from Kindergarten through High School. These school include, but are not limited to, Sycamore Elementary School, Corona Foothills Middle School, and both Andrada Polytechnic High School and Pantano High School.

The Perks

The builders of the community left 1,100 acres of open land. This land is filled with trails and opportunity for adventure in the resident’s backyard.

Parks. The Sycamore Canyon Park and Playground has activities for the entire family. From the fields, courts and jungle gym to the surrounding views of the Santa Rita and Santa Catalina mountains, many families love spending the sunny Arizona days in this venue. For residents, there are ramada and barbecues, which make it an ideal setting for holding events and parties. The HOA regularly hosts events in this park.

Swimming Pool. There is also a community swimming pool next to the park that accommodates swimmers of all ages. The pool is open most of the year, but it is closed from January 1 through March 14. After that, the pool is heated in the Spring and Fall but not in the summer.

Trails. Sycamore Canyon is close to the Arizona Trail, but there are other hiking trails located just a stone’s throw away. In all, residents can hike or bike along almost 8 miles of desert. Desert wildlife regularly makes an appearance, which adds a sense of remoteness to the system of trails located so close to the community. View the Sycamore Canyon trail map here.

Events. There is an active events committee constantly planning and putting together new activities for residents, such as Zumba.

Life in Sycamore Canyon

Living in Sycamore Canyon might seem far out, but it’s less than a half hour drive to downtown Tucson. This neighborhood is also close to top employment spots, such as Raytheon, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, and the University of Arizona Science and Technology Park. This proximity gives the benefits of both the rural and urban lifestyles.
