An enjoyable quick hike with the family.

Hot trail with little shade. Good hike for kids but bring lots of water.

Easy hike, we did this one in the evening which is perfect because there's no shade. The bridge is so pretty if you continue behind and look back over the canyon and the bridge.

Beautiful! Fun hike!

favorite short hike. also good running trail along BST that leads to the bridge.

One of my favorite easy trails! They finally allowed dogs on it this year and now they're banned again so we're pretty sad!

I really like this trail. The very beginning is steep, but once you get past that first little bit the trail isnt too bad. It is narrow, but fairly easy (my 3 elementary age kids could easily hike this one). The bridge at the end is fun and the views are pretty. I went in the morning. If you go when the sun is high it will be hot.

Go in the evening. There was not a lot of shade.

Hiked up the sawmill trail numerous times but until yesterday never beyond the first creek after crossing over into Big Willow. Yesterday I kept going up the steep wooded slopes and beyond. The trail opened up some above the thick forested section and there were great views back down the valley. I kept going up through Aspen and scattered fir trees, sometimes steep and other times through small meadows. The Rocky Mouth ridgeline on the north side of the canyon appears almost like Bell's Canyon. I encountered another solo hiker and we encouraged one another to keep going. The trail is faint at times but the red tags on the trees and pink ribbon tape helped us keep on track. As we approached the top meadow another hiker appeared behind us. It was a man named Ted who was fit beyond belief and who said he hiked up there regularly. We followed him through the top meadow to a ridge overlooking Bell's Canyon with fantastic views of Twin Peaks, etc. It took me 4 hours up and 3 back down, crossing three streams in Big Willow canyon. My hiking app said I had gone 9.9 miles and 4911' elevation gain. Great hike but certainly challenging and on most days you will encounter few or no other hikers.

A very pretty, very easy little hike! The bridge is lovely, and I enjoyed the views of the valley. The path is nicely shaded.

Little/Big Willow canyons and rocky mouth peak. Also Lone peak
