The Sawyer River and Sawyer Pond Trail in the White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire is an easy 10 mile out-and-back trail, great for beginner backpackers. Follow Sawyer River Trail about 3 miles to Sawyer River Road, take a left on the road, walk briefly on the road to a footbridge on the right, which is the beginning of Sawyer Pond Trail (no sign). Hike 1.5 miles to the pond.
The entire hike is about 10 miles out-and-back and about 5 miles one-way. The trail itself is not very difficult, but beginners may find it more moderate than easy.
Camping: There's a shelter and 6 tent platforms at the pond. The pond can get buggy during warmer months as well.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance .
