Trail Sawmill Flat
Just to Clarify, this is the 16N74 Rd. All the signs and USFS maps use this number.

Should of read review below first, several hike a bike sections and I took the wrong turn at the viewpoint. A few walk sections but was actually more ridable but steep, loose and one nuts drop off a log if you got big cahones & shocks

This is an actual paved road, unlike Sawtooth Rd, which connects to it

Lots of hike a bike. Be careful not to take wrong turn at the viewpoint. Not a great mtb trail.

While this trail is definitely bi-directional, I always plan my ride to do this section as a descent. It is short, but really sweet!

Local bike shop person wasn’t a huge fan but I enjoyed the forest cruise and partial lake views.

Not rideable above fiberboard, went down rim, had to walk over some snow patches, otherwise beautiful day to ride
