Nice hike although at 60 years old I was breathing heavily at several times. (which is good)
The Trail itself is quite Rocky with very few spots with no rocks.

The drive up to the starting spot is 30 minutes so put that in your schedule.

We did the entire hike in 3 hours.

Enjoy!

Trail was a little overgrown, but still easy to follow. Great views from the top. I will definitely do this one again in the fall.

Pretty easy trail once you get past the "ankle breaking" rocks that litter the first mile or so.

Just went this weekend--Mid November and there was a light sprinkle of snow everywhere that was breath-taking. This is my go-to day hike as you can do it in half a day and still get other things done. It's about 5 miles round trip from the Sawmill trailhead. I brought all 3 dogs and we saw a few pretty birds and about 6 other hikers. I do this hike in about 4 hours stopping with dogs but I think one could easily do it in 3 really moving fast.
