Sawtooth Lake (2 Trips)



This is Mount Regan from Sawtooth Lake during trip 2.

Trip Report (October 17th, 1999):
I could not pass up on great late season weather, so I headed up to the Sawtooths to scout climbs of Alpine Peak and Mt. Regan. During this trip, I got a couple of great shots of Mt. Regan and Sawtooth Lake... enjoy!

Directions:
From Stanley, drive 4 miles north to the Iron Creek road. After a couple miles, the road reaches the developed Iron Creek transfer camp, where parking and information is available.

Route:
Follow the signed trail about 3 miles to Alpine Lake. From there, the trail switchbacks up to Sawtooth Lake in about 2 miles. From Sawtooth Lake, you have trails heading west and south. I explored the one to the west on the first trip and went south under Mount Regan on my second trip.
