Description

This review is for an UP of Sawmill, which is the best way to take it. Other adjacent trails are better going DOWN off of the IMT into this area.

There is not much to this trail. It starts off doubletrack from the bottom, narrowing to singletrack. This tread can be wet when the water table is high. Some short steeper climbs also exist on this trail, as well as some rocky areas with a scattering of babyheads.

Sawmill begins at the intersection of Rush Trail and FS 615. This is a low-lying area that has a washed out culvert and an unrideable ditch directly east at this open area...thats the beginning of the trail. Begin there, and start climbing. About 1.4 mi in, there is an intersection with Buzzard Den (entering from the right), and just after that is Wright Hollow and Feathercamp Ridge. Feathercamp Ridge is a good way to get more of the IMT if desired. Sawmill stays left, skirts the lower part of the ridge, then actually goes down a bit to the IMT. There will be one more turn to navigate, staying left at the gate and the Iron Mountain Spur (4641).
