Professional guides with unparalleled knowledge of Idaho's south-central backcountry. I would recommend, without reservation, any of their services and backcountry educational programs to anyone interested in exploring Idaho.

We had an awesome 3 day Level 1 course with Erik learning avalanche safety/rescue & backcountry/touring skills. Thorough & fun, I can't imagine a better introduction to the backcountry with the most knowledgeable guides in the area. For those looking to get out of the resort this is a real treat

6 of us with an average age of 68 spent 4 days and 3 nights hiking with Saw Tooth Mountain Guides, Sept 9-12, 2020. Matt and Amy and Doug were our guides and did a fantastic job. We highly recommend this trip at any age. The beauty surpassed our expectations. It was great not to have to carry full packs and prepare meals. The guides were knowledgeable, considerate and fun.

I've been dreaming to climb the Elephant Perch, the Idaho's Big Wall, for several years. Several reasons kept me apart from it: too remote, too challenging, too difficult to find and too easy to get lost. Well all good reasons until i found the Sawtooth Mountain Guides, by chance. And then i gave myself a chance to make my dreams come true. Thank you SMG and Matt for that!

My wife and I completed a guided hike with JP on September 12, 2020. It was awesome! We had a great time heading up to Goat Lake. JP was extremely knowledgeable and provided a great experience. We will definitely be returning to Sawtooth Mountain Guides in the future!

If you are looking for a big adventure or small... these are the people to call. Our family of 5 had the best time exploring and rock climbing with Sawtooth Mountain guides. The guides were great with our 3 boys; ages 13, 11 and 7. We ate well and slept comfortably!

This company really customized our trip. We are regular backpackers who spend a great deal of time in the mountains, we wanted to learn new skills and see new country! The guides customized our climbing routes for each individual.

Our guides Neils, JP and Steve went above and beyond! Thanks for a great trip!

We had a great time climbing in the city of rocks! My 14 year old loved it. The best part was our guide ! It was a great privilege to be "shown the ropes" by a legend.

We had an incredible alpine climb to the top of Mount Heyburn. We have done several hikes and climbs around the Redfish Lake area, and this was by far the best. Our guide, Matt Scrivner of Sawtooth Mountain Guides, was very determined to make sure we had an amazing experience on the mountain, and he was incredibly focused on our safety during the climb. We are definitely pleased that we chose to climb with Sawtooth Mountain Guides!
