Description

Starting at the Sawmill Trail picnic area, head out on the Yellow Trail. This circles up to a high overlook via a moderate climb. Continue to an intersection with the Blue Trail. Follow down from the overlook on a steep descent. The trail will circle back around to the picnic area trailhead. The route is well signed and you can keep a visual on the start/end point during the hike.
