    If you’re looking for a good solid day hike that checks all the boxes, Scotchmans will deliver. Starting at the basin climbing from mature forest with lush understory up to sub alpine meadows with wonderfully layered vistas on up to alpine talus and a rewarding peak experience. Longer than 7.5 miles, bring adequate water 3+ liters and layers, top is often cold and windy, even in summer

Scotchman Peak
Now is the perfect time to head to North Idaho’s numerous mountains. And Scotchman Peak, with its commanding views of Lake Pend Oreille to the south, Montana’s Cabinet Mountains to the East and Canada to the north, is a rewarding objective for a competent and fit hiker. The hike is about 8 miles round trip, but in the 4 uphill miles you gain more than 3,500 feet making it a vigorous excursion. And while the return is all down hill, it can be hard on knees and hips. Bring plenty of water as there is no reliable water source during the hike.
