Hiking in the Sapphire Range
Community Discovery Day

See new territory as you go on a volunteer guided hike in the Sapphire Range on the east side of the Bitterroot valley. The hike will begin at the Sawmill Saddle and head south for 2.5 miles aiming for an outcropping with great views across the valley. Along the way enjoy the scenery of the Alder Creek drainage to the east. The focus of the trip will be on the hike and the views with a little natural history thrown in along the way.

The trail is rocky and bit steep in spots. This is a moderate to strenuous hike. Hiking poles are recommended.
