A beautiful relatively mellow (for ADK High Peaks) hike up Sawteeth via the Scenic Route from Lower Ausable Lake. Additional stops included Marble Point and Rainbow Falls (definitely worth it).

Hiked yesterday, skipped scenic route given conditions, snow covered and very icy at top. Nice gravel road walk into the trail. Trail was in good condition and easy to follow. Were only ones on the trail, snowed again last night.

We hiked this high peak in August with a group of 12- half taking the "scenic route" which is more difficult. It's challenging and varied and was a wonderful hike. Someone in our group saw a small bear on the scenic side- a yearling. Footwork takes focus; really takes your mind off "life"- which was refreshing!

Rainbow falls is a great side spur trail stop to check out! Moderate for a high peak, but challenging enough ( if you don't go up or down the scenic trail part). Great views of Gothics, Saddleback and Basin!
