Description

Added by Grant Gerhart

Scotchman Peak is a challenging 8 mile hike with all the views of the surrounding area. Hike up early and see the mountain goats. Idaho's beauty around every switchback.

Start in the morning and beat the heat. This hike is switchbacks all the way to the top, no flat spots. Take a break at a small dirt clearing about halfway from the top. Keep pushing and you can arrive at the summit (7009 feet) within 3 hours. On top you will find mountain goats and 360 degree views of Lake Pend Oreille and the Selkirk Mountains. DO NOT FEED THE GOATS. Feeding them could result in there removal from the area or their death to prevent injury to hikers. This hike is a beautiful one and offers a challenge but a reward.
