This hike will proceed from the Blue Lake TH to the abandoned Sawmill Creek logging road, which we will follow for a few miles to the first creek junction, then off trail to the alpine basin which forms the primary watershed for Sawmill Creek.  We will ascend a prominent ridge leading toward Peak 12,386'.  At an altitude of about 11,900', we will traverse to the saddle between 12,386' and 12,390'.  From there, we will directly ascend Peak 12,390'.  The expected terrain is Class 2 with a mix of grass and talus.  We will likely take a different route for the top half of the overall descent, but this will depend on weather and snow conditions.  Participants can expect a full day and a significant workout in a spectacular setting with a good likelihood of seeing wildlife but few if any other people.
