When approaching this GPS point you will be going by a small clearing on the north side of the river and you will see a very large sycamore tree right on the bank of the river. Sycamore trees are one of the easiest trees to identify along the Grand River due to their unique exfoliating bark.

The bark of the Sycamore has to yield to the growth of the trunk resulting in it flaking off of the trunk. Sycamore bark flakes off in large irregular masses leaving the surface looking almost like camouflage - with a collage of green, white, gray and brown.

Sycamore trees can grow to be massive, reaching heights of 100-130 feet and having the ability to attain the largest trunk diameter of any of the eastern hardwood species.
