Approach map to Sawtooth Canyon and Notch Peak:<br>
Pull off highway 6/50 onto dark gravel road around mile marker 43.  This road converges with a dirt road called the Tule Valley Road.  This road leads to Painter Springs.  From the highway, drive approximately 6.5 miles to a four-way intersection.  Turn right onto the rough road and drive for about two miles and park in a clearing just before the streambed.  If you brought a high-clearance vehicle with four-wheel drive that you don't mind scratching up, you can drive up the wash for another half mile to the wilderness study area sign.

It is Mile post 33, not 43.

Look for a sign pointing to Painter Springs.

Off the gravel road, take a right at 6.5 miles- the only obvious right turn.

Expect to drive an hour from Delta. Aug 15, 2007
