Self Guided Hikes: Hiking the Scotchmans

This section contains information on several self-guided hikes into the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Area, so that if you are not able to join one of the scheduled Guided Hikes you will still be able to enjoy this beautiful scenic roadless area.

If you have questions before you go on any of these hikes, please send email to but be sure to ask several days in advance so that we have time to answer your question.

Hiking the Scotchmans

The Scotchmans are a great place to go exploring on or off trail. We encourage you to pick up a free Scotchman Peaks map. They are available at a bunch of local retailers that are listed on our Maps page. A detailed topo map is available for purchase through Avenza.

More information on each of these trails may be found from the Forest Service or in the book “Trails Of The Wild Cabinets” available from Keokee Press.
