Description: The Sawtooths is an area of deeply dissected sandstone outcrops. Here, vegetation normally associate with higher elevations (aspen, oak and ponderosa pine) can be found.  From the trailhead, follow a two track road southeast along the highway fence for about 0.25 mi (400 m) then turn right on a 2-track road and start climbing.  Follow the road for another 1.5 mi (2.4 km) until it devolves into a single track and then a cross-country track.  Once on the cross-country portion, follow the GPS track, or continue upslope until the canyon to the right (NW) becomes shallow enough to cross.  Then turn downhill on top of the sandstone until an animal trail provides a ramp off of the rock. Continues cross-country travel downslope will return you to the trail head. Of note is that where the trail turns back downhill at the halfway mark, one can continue up for another 0.5 mi (0.8 km) to a great overview of East Paradox Valley.
