Movies and Films in the Scotchmans

Wildman Pictures

We hope you’ll enjoy these movies from Wildman Pictures of wilderness scenes taken from within the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Area….but more importantly we hope they’ll inspire you to come spend some time in this beautiful roadless area – hiking, camping, fishing, or just relaxing.

Come see what the Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Area has to offer you and your family, and why it’s so important to protect its future.

Grass Routes: Changing The Conversation — The Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness have changed the conversation about Wilderness in North Idaho and western Montana by listening to what other interested parties have to say.

En Plein Air — Follow the artists of the Extreme Plein Air hike through the Scotchmans and learn about the Peaks and why the painters paint them.
