The Sawtooth Range is part of the Rocky Mountains, located within a few miles of Stanley, Idaho, in the Western United States. Much of mountain range is within the Sawtooth Wilderness, part of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The Sawtooth Range includes parts of four counties: Custer, Boise, Blaine, and Elmore[1].

The mountains encompass an area of 678 square miles (1,756 km2), and the two highest peaks in the Sawtooths are the 10,751-foot (3,277 m) Thompson Peak and the 10,716-foot (3,266 m) Mount Cramer.[2] The range is bordered to the east by the Sawtooth Valley.

Lakes

Sawtooth Mountains and Toxaway Lake

There are hundreds of lakes in the Sawtooth Mountains that were created by alpine glaciers, which no longer exist in the mountains. The largest lakes are Redfish Lake, Alturas Lake, Pettit Lake, Yellow Belly Lake, Stanley Lake, and Sawtooth Lake.

Camping

Several campsites can be found below the peaks and in the Stanley, Idaho area. Iron Creek is a smaller popular campsite located at the bottom of the range. There is a larger amount of camping available at the nearby Redfish Lake and Little Redfish Lake campgrounds. Camping is permitted anywhere in the wilderness, although it is recommended that people camp where others have camped previously. Restrictions on fires and animals apply in some areas.

Seismic risk

In 2010, scientists from the Idaho State University mapped the recently-discovered Sawtooth Fault near the base of the mountains and found that it could produce an earthquake measuring up to magnitude 7.5 on the Richter scale. Two past large earthquakes likely took place on the fault around 7,000 and 4,000 years b.p. The fault stretches 40 mi (64 km) long, and runs near Stanley, Idaho and Redfish Lake, and the potential future earthquake would also be felt in Boise.[3][4]
