CLIMATE: Cool winter/snow and summer.
BEST TIME TO VISIT: Fall, Spring, Summer.
A neat site.
REMAINS: One cabin and some foundations.
Once home to six hundred people, Sawtooth
now has one old cabin and the crumbling remains of dozens of
others scattered among the pines. In 1883, the Columbia and Beaver
Company built a twenty stamp mill and the well-laid stone foundations
of the mill still remain. The town lasted until 1889 when the
ore ran out and so did the people. What is unique about the old
log cabin is that it is well braced by pine trees which is the
only reason the cabin still stands.
