I took this Sunday journey solo. The path was situated close to Blue Mountain Lake. and it’s a brief 2.1 mile spherical journey hike. I feel it took me longer to drive right here, than hike the mountain. Nevertheless it was properly price it to get out and luxuriate in a pleasant fall day and to soak up some contemporary mountain air.
The path has a small car parking zone and is situated off of a primary freeway. The climate on this explicit day was excellent for this hike, though a bit windy, the solar was out and the leaves made a path of fireplace to the highest.
The hike was a reasonable climb and was not too busy. I solely handed a handful of individuals and an enormous black canine named Doug, that I assumed was a child black bear.
There isn’t a path to the true summit of the mountain, and different bloggers have acknowledged there is no such thing as a view from the summit both. Though you’re unable to get to the very high of Sawyer Mountain, there may be nonetheless an amazing rock platform that gives superb views and a change to calm down earlier than heading again down.
I spent round half-hour on the high, having fun with the view and consuming a small snack, earlier than heading again right down to the car parking zone. A lot of the leaves had already fallen, however there was nonetheless a slight orange glow throughout the vary.
I ended up operating down the mountain to finish my fast hike.
After reviewing different posts about this mountain, it looks as if an amazing path for snowshoeing. I’ll undoubtedly be heading again to Sawyer Mountain this winter to check that out!
