Winter Hike Season approacheth.

Get your snowshoes out and find your skis. Winter hike season is falling out of the sky as we go to press.

We welcome all varieties of winter hikers from snowshoe strollers to skinned-up skiers, and there is plenty of opportunity in the Scotchmans for all of them. Watch for our new hike schedule after the 15th of December.

If you want to lead a hike, we still have plenty of open days for you. Contact or go to and fill out our online hike form.

See you in the wilderness this winter!
