Sawyer Run Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This is a moderate ski tour into beautiful Sawyer Pond, just outside the Pemi gewasset Wilderness."

"This trip explores the wildlife-rich forests to the east of Mount Carrigain. Several good views of the mountain can be seen from beaver ponds along the way, and three river crossings also make for good spots to sit and soak in the summer sun. The ride is fairly level; although one steep climb on a forest road will make you question the easy rating for a few moments, trust us—the climb is only 0.5 mile.

You will be riding on hiking trails for portions of this trip, so be prepared to give hikers the right of way. You should also be prepared to yield to moose, as the Sawyer River Trail passes through a long stretch of boggy spruce forest. Since this trip begins with a crossing of the Swift River, you will not be able to ride it in spring when the river crossing is next to impossible."

Very cool trail. We hiked it in the fall with beautiful foliage. The hike can be difficult at times but is fun with all kind of different terrain and even a ladder for scaling a rock ledge. Amazing views! My wife and I enjoyed this hike very much. Just make sure you leave early to have plenty of day light.

Outstanding trail. Exciting views of Tuckerman's Ravine, Linohead, Hermit Shelter, and Mt. Washington. Well marked and layed out. 3500 ft. elev. gain in 3 1/2 miles. In dry season, carry water. One of the least traveled paths in the Whites but one of the most spectacular. Ending at Davis Path, either right and down of left to Lakes of the Clouds Hut and Mt. Washington. Difficult in dry weather, dangerous in wet. Be prepared
