Great easy hike. If you’re looking for the trailhead, it’s on the day use side, across of the restrooms, tucked behind a tree (see photos we just added). Some of the trail signage is very easy to miss.

First off, this trail was kinda hard to find when you get to the day area, took twenty minutes of driving in circles to find the poorly marked trailhead. Second, the trail splits constantly with no sense of which split goes where. Each split has different colored arrows to which I was assuming different ways to go. Which comes third, there is no map of this trailhead at all at the site. Yes, maps are there of Mt Charleston trails, but Sawmill was not listed so it was easy to get lost. Two stars for it being relatively easy to hike despite the circumstance.

I had fun getting lost, literally lost, but I felt robbed of my time because we ended up not even going on the right trail because the trail markers were minuscule and easy to miss. We got lost for maybe most of the hike, thankfully we had a compass and kept heading south until we found our way. Regardless, it wasn’t very scenic, the view of Mummy Mountain was better on the way there. Maybe if there had been snow I would’ve enjoyed it more.
