Lead a Hike

There’s no better way to share your love of wilderness than to lead a hike.

To lead a FSPW hike, you don’t have to be a fast hiker or an expert outdoors person. All you need is a familiarity with the trail and enthusiasm for leadership.

Leaders can guide a hike in the Scotchmans at any time of the year. You can lead a hike in the summer or a snowshoe adventure in the winter.

Leading a hike for FSPW is an easy and fun 4 step process:

  1. Plan your trip.
  2. Submit your plan to FSPW staff.
  3. Coordinate with hikers before your adventure.
  4. Hike and be merry!

We accept hike leader applications on a rolling basis. But please submit your application at least 2 weeks before your intended hike date. 

For more information, take a peek at the Hike Leader Packet. If you have any questions, contact us at info@scotchmanpeaks.org

I lead hikes for FSPW as my way to help others get out into this amazing wilderness for the first time or the hundredth time. Getting to see a fellow hiker experience a new area, new trail, or just a new season as a trail leader is the most rewarding thing.” – Jamilee, volunteer hike leader
