Sawmill Pass Trail

Independence, California

Sawmill Pass Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is another of those grueling eastside approaches on unmaintained trail that will repel almost any clear-thinking backpacker; it starts near a sinkhole in Owens Valley at an elevation 1,300 feet lower than the Baxter Pass Trail (Trip 105, page 372). There is no shade for the first 4 miles, and little promise of much more beyond. Sections of tread have virtually disappeared."
