Overview

Description

Sawtooth Ridge Trail 1403 (not to be confused with Sawtooth Mountain Trail #3634 near Lake Timpanogas) is a good, long-ish connection between Hardesty Trail #3469 and Lost Creek Trail #3462. This route allows access to Eagle’s Rest and Goodman Creek trails leading down to Hardesty Portal.

Sawtooth is best accessed from the Hardesty Trail #3469. Ride up the steep climb toward the Hardesty descent, staying left at the first trail intersection to keep on the Hardesty Cut-off Trail (avoids climbing to the summit). In the middle of a long traverse on a steep side slope, turn left by way of a steep switchback onto the Sawtooth Trail.

This trail descends briefly and then traverses on rugged and techy terrain before reaching Sawtooth Ridge. The ridge section climbs and descends steeply a few times before opening into a large sloped meadow with good views to the south of the Umpqua National Forest and June Mountain. After re-entering the woods, a section of fast, flowy old growth leads to the intersection with June Mountain Trail.

From here, a short hike a bike leads to the top of June Mountain. At the three-way intersection of Sawtooth and Mount June (1400) trails, the trail leading west is now called Lost Creek Trail #3462. Follow this trail for 2.5 miles to the paved FS road 511. You can ride FS Road 511 for two easy miles westward to pick up the Eagles Rest Trail #3461.
