Sawteeth Mountain is the 35th-highest of New York's High Peaks, with an elevation of 4,100 ft.
There are two trails to the summit from Lower Ausable Lake. The older trail is referred to as the Scenic trail and is a winding trail through the “teeth” of the mountain. The newer trail follows the Gothics Trail and ascends directly up the north side. Popular opinion of many hikers is that this is is a good loop trip. They choose to take the newer trail for their ascent and the Scenic Trail for their decent as it is an easier direction.
