I wanted to hike Dogie Trail to Taylor Cabin this fall, but the 2021 Raphael Fire has me second guessing this plan.  I would not be much fun hiking through a burnt-out barren zone.  It is difficult to get much information on the extent of the damage or up-to-date satellite images of the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Area.  I guess I will just have to recon it myself.

@Mark67 - I hiked Sycamore way back in the 60's - wonderful, scenic place.  It still has value.  The soaring cliffs of the canyon remain.  Hiking through a fare scarred area is a different experience, perhaps more sobering than 'fun," but not all worthwhile experiences are necessarily fun.
