Check out our upcoming guided hikes, trail projects, and events!
We offer free group hikes in the Scotchmans all winter and summer long! We have hikes for all abilities–from easy family hikes to off trail bushwhack adventures. All hikes are led by volunteers. If you’d like to help get folks out into the Scotchmans, sign-up to lead a hike.
Each summer, we restore trails in the Scotchmans so that people can continue to explore our wild backyard. We use crosscut saws, Pulaski’s, shovels, and teamwork to care for the trail. Join us for a trail project day to give back to the trails you love.
We host events all year long throughout Idaho and Montana to build community around a love for the outdoors. Family fun in the summer, a film festivals in the winter, and a silent auction in the fall are just a few of the events you can look forward to. To stay up-to-date on events, subscribe to our email list.
