Sawtooth Pass Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Great Western Divide towers more than 4000 feet above the small hamlet of Mineral King in southern Sequoia National Park. The trail climbs up, straight up the divide’s flanks, providing sweeping views of the soaring mountains and precipitous valleys. Beautiful Monarch Lake awaits at the base of 12,343-foot Sawtooth Peak, a jagged, trail-less summit that offers magnificent and far-reaching views of the Sierra Crest, the Kern River Canyon, and the Great Western Divide."

"The Monarch Lakes are nestled in a beautiful lake basin just below Sawtooth and Mineral Peaks at an elevation of 10,400 feet. Sawtooth Peak is a favorite of summer climbers and is equally enjoyable to the ski mountaineer or snow-boarder in the early spring. Empire Mountain, 1.5 miles northwest of Sawtooth Peak and Glacier Pass, is also a wonderful ski destination. Since these slopes face south and west, the skiing is best early in the season."
