Boykin Springs to the Old Aldridge Saw Mill
Sawmill Hiking Trail - 8/6/2016  [View Log Page]
Rating: Difficulty: Solitude:
Distance: 6.00 Miles Duration: N/A

This was a great hike along the Boykin Spring Creek. The first half was way more scenic (with SETx style waterfalls) than the second half. Whereas , crossings weren't very difficult, there were places where the bridges were gone and hiking up steep inclines through the water shed tributaries do exist.


The old saw mill has been defaced with grafitti but was still a site worth visiting.

This hike took about 2 hours including stops for photo shoots along the way.

This was a nice easy hike. Plenty of pitcher plants along the trail, hence it's name. Kinda unique if you've never seen these neat plants. A lot of the trail is a boardwalk, and very maintained where it isn't.

Great hike, lots of beauty with not much effort. Some elevation changes going in, but well worth the heat in July.
