Hiked this trail october 1st, 2012 with my dog. We got about a quarter of the way up, about 6 miles or so. The trail is a nice steady uphill climb with the views of lake Hughes road to the left. At one point in the trail you can head south-east or north- east. Without a map Janks and I veered left uphill staying on Sawmill, I think. We last for another few miles before heading back. My 1st expedition with the only the dog. Next time I'll head out by myself and see how far I can get.
