Sawmill is narrower, rockier, fainter, and more technical than other McGaffee trails. Still beautiful, but I'll stick to the west side of the highway 10mi — 12h 00m

If taking Sawmill back to the Hilso Trailhead, just know that you'll have to either hoist your bike over, or drag it under a barbwire fence.
