Three out of four weekends in February boast led hikes from FSPW. Two will be in the Blue Creek area at the south end of the wilderness; one on February 6 led by Judy Hutchins and another, “full moon,” trek on February 27 led by Sandy Compton. The third hike is into Morris Creek on February 20, led by Jim Mellen. Go to our hike page (https://www.scotchmanpeaks.org/hiking/current-hiking-schedule/) for more details and sign up contacts.
