Mt. Pinos, Sawmill Peak and beyond


We will be hiking to the top of Mt. Pinos, Sawmill Peak and "perhaps"  as far as Mount Abel. The total distance is anywhere between five to perhaps as much as 12  miles depending on far "you" want to go.  If you are a beginner and only want to go to the top of Mount Pinos than that is one option. If you want to go farther to Sawmill peak that is around six to seven miles round trip...but...if you want a long challenging workout you can go all the way to Mount Abel which is around 12 miles with around 2500 feet elevation gain. This hike is for all level of hikers. Make sure you bring plenty of water because there is no water on this trail and  it will still be warm in our neck of the woods. Also, you might want to bring a hat and sunscreen because we will be above the treeline for much of the hike.Hope you can join us!

    This was a wonderful hike I did 7.5 miles where some went on doing more. The trail was easy to follow with some ups and downs. It was windy and cool. Not too difficult. The views were amazing. Great job Bill..

    Do we need to get a parking pass tonight? I think it's called a wilderness pass.

      Pam, Typically for Mt Pinos they are only needed during the winter. It's their winter sports that require the increased management.
