This trail begins in the near-desert conditions of the Owens Valley and climbs to a deep blue lake in the High Sierra. Along the way you will pass through a variety of ecosystems and sample some history as you walk beneath the ruins of a mill that supplied lumber to miners in the 1860s. Besides being a challenging weekend backpack, this trail offers an entry or exit from the combined John Muir Trail/Pacific Crest Trail (JMT/PCT) between Pinchot Pass and Glen Pass. A word of warning: The Sawmill Trail is hot, dry, and exposed to the sun for the first 2,510 feet of this very strenuous 5,400-foot climb. Get an early morning or late afternoon start, and carry at least two quarts of water per person. Also note that this is a bighorn sheep preservation area; dogs and cross-country hiking are not allowed.
