Easy and short good for my 2 year old. Some poison ivy to watch out for. Didn’t really like walking through people’s campsites however.

This was an absolutely gorgeous trail, not too long and real easy with kids and dogs. Beautiful Sunday afternoon - we only saw very few people - lots of campground areas with tables and grills and amazing views of the lake. We even spotted a beaver dam!

Hiked here when we were camping at Sawmill Lake. Easy hike, only a bit awkward because the trail sometimes passes right in the middle of occupied camping sites.

First to Review

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.
