Just a mile beyond Alpine Lake sits Sawtooth Lake, one of the most scenic lakes in the Sawtooth Wilderness. The sheer size of the clear sparkling lake-nearly 170 acres-is breathtaking. The lake is shouldered by two outstanding peaks, Mount Regan (10,190 feet) and the massive Alpine Peak (9,861 feet), along with many other unnamed peaks close to 9,400 feet.
