I thought this was a fairly easy hike. Started at 8:15 a.m. The weather was crisp and the sun was shining. Plenty of shade along this trail.

I have to say that the trail to Sawmill isn't marked very well. Thankfully, I had some screen shots of a thorough trip report (with pictures!) to use as a reference. Super helpful especially when there's no cell service.

I attempted the 3-2-1 challenge and continued on after Sawmill, but could not figure out where the summit of Grouse Mountain is? Never came across any definitive markers or landmarks. I didn't want to keep exploring and risk getting lost, so turned back after a mile or so. Oh well.

Made it back to the parking lot by 1 p.m. and saw a few more cars than in the morning. Only came across a few mountain bikers and 4 hikers while on the trail. Otherwise, it was super quiet and serene. The views were amazing.
