A road leads to a FAA radar dome on the summit of this impressive and prominent peak. Livingston Douglas points out that “the high point of Sawtell Peak is not in the parking area or at the communication towers. It’s farther to the north along a rocky ridge, well away from the crowds and the towers. You can’t drive to the top of this peak, though you certainly can get pretty close.” USGS Sawtell Peak
