Sawyer Mountain Trail is a 2.1 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Blue Mountain Lake, New York that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from February until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Trailhead located on Rte 28/30 between Indian Lake and Blue Mountain Lake in the Adirondacks. Summit is wooded but there are 2 lookouts on the way up and another 100 yards beyond the summit. Nice views.
It's late autumn and there was snow, so it was definitely rather cold and very windy. The trail itself is good for beginners (like us!), there were a few challenges that added a bit more fun to it but nothing too difficult. The summit is not that impressive, it's nice, but nothing incredible. The trail is very well marked and easy to spot. Overall, a decent hike and made for a nice outing.
beautiful view from the top of the mountain.
good hike with the kids!
If you have never hiked a mountain before this would be a great place to start. It is roughly a 3 mile round trip. The trail is wide open and fairly easy. The view from the top is limited but what you can see is very nice. I gave this 5 stars because that is what my wife said to rate it. She enjoyed this hike because it wasn't a lot of work and there were many great photos to take.
Nice easy hike for the wife and kids. The view of ok. Nothing special. I'm sure it'd be ten times better in late fall or winter, after all the leaves are off the trees that block the view.
Gonna hit this up tomorrow as well as others. Can't wait.
Very quiet and underrated trail....way up is mysterious but the view was worth it! Not too hard although in Autumn it can be challenging to see the trail markers!
Good hike with some nice views just before and just past the top. Good for kids and dogs. Fairly short.
