Ventured on the Sawyer Mtn Road trail to the summit of Sawyer Mountain for some winter hiking today, after some fresh snow. While we didn't need our snowshoes, the microspikes were almost required with the layer of sneaky ice under the new snow.

There were many small fallen trees to hike around in the ravine area (trail work in the spring could fix this.) The ice and tree dodging made this trek longer than expected.

All in all a fun time that took about 2 hours to the summit and 1 hour back down.

Next time we'll try the Sherwood Libby Trail (longer trail).

There is no trailhead sign, the trails are not marked at all. Trail itself was decent, limited parking.

Just beautiful!

A fun little family hike. It was cool to walk around the river and rocks near the waterfall.

Seem good

Have hiked this mountain several times!!! Love the new Sherwood Libby Trail on the Limington side of the mountain, its in the woods and you go by several rock walls. This is a a newer trail and it's very easy to follow, marked really good. Not a great view at the top but overall a nice hike.

Not my favorite hike. It was mostly wooded and more of a nature walk than a hike (nice but not what I was expecting). The views at the peak were limited but pretty. Might hike again someday to check out the waterfall and explore a little more. I wouldn’t recommend this trail for running as the trail has lots of little rocks.

It's a great quick walk with the dog. Greats views and a bonus waterfall. I'll definitely do it again soon.

This was a great find, we took our 4 month old lab, he would rate it a 5 plus. We are 70 and did about half way great hike, wish there were more spots to enjoy a dip!

Really beautiful walk in the woods. The waterfalls are worth a 100 pictures. Great lunch spot. We are blessed to have such beauty close to home!

Enjoyable hike but not much variety to it or views. Did find a bunch of different kinds of mushroom on the path and saw the occasional chipmunk and toads.

A solid hike

trail is marked well. Great wildlife.

Today’s hike in the Sawyer Mountain Highlands was wonderful! We went to the trailhead at Limington (117), got a map, and decided to go up the Sawyer Mountain Road. We saw the sign for the Sherwood Libby Trail, but most reviews we read were for the former, so we opted for that. The trail is so interesting! There are cabins and homes right on the road, as well as numerous cemeteries and side trails. We stayed on the main trail and with a few stops for breathing and water, made it to the top with no problems. The bugs (after spraying ourselves with bug spray) were minimal, although we had to reapply later in the hike. We descended via the Sherwood Libby Trail, which proved to be a beautiful, winding meander through the woods, up and down several “hills”. There are some steep areas, but nothing too taxing. Amazing rock walls for property boundaries made us appreciate the hard work the early settlers must have endured. The whole trip took us just under 3 ½ hours (4.9 miles). Lots of stops for pictures and trail mix! Saw two owls and the usual number of squirrels. Everything was well-marked and easy to follow. We understand the Sherwood Libby Trail is new…great job! We will definitely go back.

More than I thought. Wish I would have taken another way down. Will do the next time to the Limerick lookout

Very nice hike. Limited views. Good for warming up early in the year.

Was surprised the hike up Hosac was mainly paved roads. Steep at times but what a view! Dogs, though chained up, were a bit intimidating as we walked by them just before you turn right on Nason Rd turn towards Hosac.

Trail is marked great, it’s clean and beautiful sites. Easy for kids too

Beautiful spot, but lots of recent damage to trail from motorbikes. Tried side trails and found more of same. Hauled my butt out of there with my dog when I heard motorbikes nearby on the trails.

Nice trail for a walk in the woods, not much for views.

Tried to go last week and the trail road was like hiking up a stream. It had rained the two days beforehand, but was frustrating and the trail was not super well marked. may try again when it's been dry for longer.

If you’re looking for an arm workout to accompany your hike then this trail is for you... because you’ll be swatting away some relentless flies for your entire journey! I’m pretty sure I’m not technically a vegetarian anymore because I swallowed at least 4 flies, gross.

I took the Sawyer Mountain Trail from Limington which was pretty decent! Make sure to wear sturdy hiking boots because the majority of the trail is very rocky, seemingly a former river bed. There were some pretty views from the summit but overall it was underwhelming. On the way down I was trying to go a little faster to seek refuge from the swarm of flies and unfortunately fell really hard on a slippery rock, so be sure to take your time and pack your insect repellent!

This trail is great for the little ones, a quick loop that offers a little bit of an incline decline as well as a river, and small waterfalls. If I can figure out how to post a pic I will but there was a small part of the trail that was flooded due to heavy recent rains. We found a way around and enjoyed the whole thing.

I live near here and hike Sawyer Mountain twice a year. Very serene with interesting rock formations. A great forest hike that is steep in some places. Get the map from the trust and look for the cascading waterfall. It's beautiful and rarely visited, though it does require some scrambling.

Great winter hike. Moose tracks and easy trail to follow.

nice trail. Much of it is on the old Sawyer Hill Rd. We came back down on the Sherwood-Libby trail. The S-L trail is not shown here. It looked and felt like it was a new trail in the process of being built. Coming down that way extended the hike to 5.4 miles.
