This is a easy, level trail that surrounds Sawmill Lake. It passes a number of primitive campsites and has views of the lake. It's about a mile around and would be good for kids or just to get out and stretch you legs. The lake would also be a good place to take kids bluegill fishing.

Blue dot was a fun climb and decent. The AT and Iris were mainly plain sailing. All three trails were very rocky, however, so prepare to have your feet and ankles banged up a little. But it's worth it for some beautiful vistas.

This trail has no recent uploads here and the new blue trail is 15 miles long unlike the prior uploaded track.
We got off trail quite a bit and ended up on the Appalachian backbone trail. We ended up doing a in and out instead of a loop due to that and with significantly less miles, just under 13. The terrain is moderately rugged and while the elevation is not something most regular hikers will worry much about, the combination of miles, changes in elevation and the typical northeast rocky terrain under your feet will make you realize the full 15 miles of this beautiful trail. It can get very lonely as it does not appear to be a very popular trail.
