Liebre Mountain to Sawmill - Trail, Lake Hughes and Gorman, California

Liebre Mountain to Sawmill - Trail, Lake Hughes and Gorman, California

DESCRIPTION

The road getting to the trailhead is never maintained. It is a mix of broken concrete (Not asphalt, actually concrete), rocks, and dirt. It is manageable with a car, but just be careful. When you get to "7N23", you will start a moderate ascent that lasts for a few miles. Don't stop, it gets easier! Keep to the left and avoid "7N22" which leads to a private ranch. Keep climbing, and you will eventually make it to the top. The road is usually very well maintained, and follows what appears to be the spine of a long ridge that wanders through a pine forest with incredible views, mountain top meadows, and remote campgrounds. There are many side trails so until you know the area keep to the main fire road. Approximately 10 miles or so into your ride you will experienced a great many short ascents and descents. You will eventually get to a well cleared dirt four way intersection. To the right is the Burnt Peak Radio Tower, straight is the Upper Sawmill truck trail to Lake Hughes Road (highly recommended for the fun factor), and left descends to Pine Canyon Road and Lake Hughes (easy and short ride back to pick up point in Lake Hughes). From here you just have to decide how motivated you are. For further info, read my review of "Upper Sawmill" trail in Lake Hughes. It all ties together. ... As you will undoubtably see wild animals such as bears, please read that trail review.
