Ascent Trip Report

This was part of Mt Pinos - Sawmill Mountain - Sawmill Mountain West (triple divide) hike which totaled 7.7 miles in 4 hours over some snow/ice. The views were great. Started the hike from the Nordic Center parking lot. The route up to Mt Pinos is generally straight forward 2 miles/600' gain. The trail to Sawmill Mountain is well marked if there isn't much snow. It was 1.5 miles beyond Mt Pinos. From the summit cairn on Sawmill Mountain, we went open country to Sawmill Mountain West which was about a quarter mile. Nothing really marks the location (i.e. no register, benchmark, etc.) We returned to the trail then back to the trail junction (& beyond) mentioned in the Sawmill Mtn trip report.
