Whether you’re facing the gnarliest snow adventure of your life or taking a summer stroll through the Ross Creek Cedars, the Scotchmans will engage you with macro views and micro environments that fascinate, fulfill and lead hikers deeper into wilderness as well as into themselves.

and put out the call for folks to accompany them. Check out our current Hiking Schedule and join us for one (or more) of our scheduled volunteer led Group Hikes ( it’s a great way to learn about the area from an experienced local hiker while you’re enjoying the Scotchmans’ scenic beauty!)

If you’re more interested in finding your own way, visit our Self-Styled Hikes page if you’d prefer to explore the area on your own. Or inquire at info@scotchmanpeaks.org about off-trail adventuring.

Getting away to enjoy some of the beauty that nature offers us allows one an opportunity to unwind and get up close and personal with both Mother Nature.

Either way, in either season, you’re sure to have a great time!
