Little LO Spring Canyon

little lo spring canyon

Formerly known as Snakepit Canyon, Little LO Canyon is a nice tributary of Sycamore Canyon and makes for a very nice wilderness loop.  The first rappel of the canyon is the biggest and is around 50 feet or so, though can be down climbed depending on water level.  This drop is also directly into a keeper pothole, which can be challenging if it is half full of water.  If it is dry or empty this is relatively easy to exit with a partner assist.  The rest of the canyon is nice and pleasant and features some nice down climbs and a rappel or two depending on conditions.  Though not particularly challenging, this is a nice, unique canyon on the Mogollon Rim and a great route into Sycamore Canyon itself.  As you near Sycamore Canyon, take the exit trail Little LO #6 up and out to your vehicle.  Keep in mind, the trail exits out of Little LO Canyon, just before the confluence with Sycamore Canyon; make sure you do not miss this or you will continue down canyon for a really, really long time and wonder what the hell is going on.  It is kinda hard to miss but has been done in the past.
