Hiking Schedule

KidsInTheWoods-300x300

The Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness is proud to present our hike series.  Winter and summer, we have a hike for everyone, from easy family hikes to overnight trips for experienced bushwhackers (We also have a selection of snowshoes and hiking poles to lend). Come join us for one of our organized hikes and see first hand why the Scotchmans deserve the protection of wilderness designation.

Group size is limited and registration is required. Listed below are our current hikes. All entries feature an easy-to-use online registration form that allows you to sign up and notifies the event leader of your intention to attend.

NOTE: IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A HIKE  AND LATER CHANGE YOUR MIND FOR ANY REASON, PLEASE LET US KNOW SO WE CAN FILL YOUR SPOT WITH OTHERS WHO ARE ON OUR WAITING LIST.

To cancel, or if your chosen hike is full and you wish to be on a waiting list, e-mail info@scotchmanpeaks.org 

Thank you for your consideration.

Please Note:  On occasion circumstances force us to change our schedule.  If you intend on joining us for any of these volunteer led Group Hikes, be SURE to sign up in advance and also re-confirm with the hike leader a day or so before the hike in case of any unavoidable last minute changes.

Interested in leading a guided hike?  View our “Leading Hikes” Page for more information, or go to our “Hike Leader – Hike Submission Form” and send us your idea for leading a hike with us!

A map with a key that references the trail heads is at the bottom of this page.

Be sure to check out our Scotchman Peaks Education Series hikes and special stewardship projects and other events!

Please note the Difficulty Rating of each hike and choose hikes within your personal physical limits. Space is limited, so be sure to sign up early!
