Overview: The three(3) mile long meadow by perennial Sawmill Creek is one of New Mexico's easiest to reach high-country destinations. The grades of this forested trail are also gentle enough for beginning backpackers. About three miles in from TH Start, the meadow and trail turns south. The valley narrows and widens several times before reaching "Sawmill Park" at 4.9 miles in. Shortly after, reaching a saddle, a fence marks the boundary of private property and legal trail end. August is wildflower, mushroom, and fungi "high" season on this very pleasant scenic forest and meadow hike.
