Take US HWY 50 through South Lake Tahoe to the intersection with SR 89
(also known as "The Y"). Do not turn right or left here, even if you're car insists on
it out of habit! Proceed straight through and drive a little less than 2 miles to Sawmill Pond,
on your left. Turn left onto Sawmill Road then immediately left into the Sawmill Pond
parking area. We park on the dirt verge as soon as we turn towards the parking area.
