Directions to Trailhead or Meeting Location:

Scotchman Peak Trail #65: Take Highway 200 to Clark Fork, Idaho then turn north at the Chevron Station onto Main Street. Follow this road past Clark Fork High School, and then around a bend to the right. At the intersection with Lightning Creek Road, set your trip odometer to 0. (Don’t turn here; keep going straight on Mosquito Creek Road.) At 0.6 miles, keep left at the fork. At 2.1 miles, turn right on FR 2295. (There won’t be a sign marking it as FR 2295. It’s marked as such on the map. You’ll know you’re heading into the right neighborhood when you pass the sign telling you you’re entering grizzly bear habitat.)

 At 3.1 miles, turn left onto FR 2294. (Again, there won’t be a sign marking it as FR 2294. You’ll see a small sign pointing toward Trail 65.)  At mile 3.6, turn left on FR 2294A.  (And, yet again, there won’t be a sign marking it as FR 2294A. Again, you’ll see a small sign pointing toward Trail 65.) Follow FR 2294A for 2.2 more miles to the end of the road, where you’ll find the trail head. Look Up.
