Sawmill Trail

The trail was in perfect shape, there were no tracks other than from a quad or rhino.



Nowwhat ripped it and left me divots to follow.



The dirt is getting little too moist but not muddy



We don't need ARTBOY to find snow!



This is at 4,700 ft elevation


Getting stuck once didn't stop us from continuing our ride


Never did snow, and my first encounter resulted to this









Getting stuck again




Here comes the rescue vehicle


If they're smart to turn around, so are we


On the way down, the only tracks there are ours


Finally at the trail head, met a couple on their way up asking Nowwhat about the trail condition.

I need to figure out how to post a google map. I have all the trails labeled in my office computer, or I can email it to anyone interested. Just have to update the file and indicate all the closed trails.

Also, I'm up to ride the same trails again next weekend. Anyone interested? This time, instead of heading out to Sawmill (turned left), we can take the trail on the right, and the other off shoots.
