Welcome to the Friends Of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness | ScotchmanPeaks.org

Wild animals. Wild lands. The incredibly wild Scotchman Peaks

The children and grandchildren of north Idaho and northwestern Montana deserve a place in which to grow up wild. Saving the Scotchman Peaks is about that and more. We all deserve a place where we're free to roam. Where we can find our own wild place.
