Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness announce their summer hike schedule, and a contest for shutterbugs.

With spring in full swing and the mountain snow pack starting to melt, the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness is excited to announce our summer 2008 hiking series! We have a hike for everyone, from easy family hikes to overnight trips for experienced bushwhackers. For your first introduction to the Scotchmans choose from one of our classic destinations. Or to see more, follow us on a unique trip, off trail and “cross country,” to one of our favorite hidden places. Come out and find out more about the geology, flora, or fauna of this unique area, or just come have fun! Join us for one of our organized hikes and see first hand why the Scotchmans deserve wilderness designation. Group size is limited and reservations are required. To sign up contact the hike leader listed. Don’t forget to check back throughout the summer for more hiking opportunities as we get them scheduled!

Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness is also pleased to announce the 2008 summer photo contest. Get your best photos of people, plants, wildlife, water and vistas in the Scotchmans and enter our photo contest! You can enter as many photos in as many categories as you want; winners will be chosen in October, and the deadline to enter is September 30.

For more details about hikes and full photo contest rules go to our website.

Roughly 60 miles south of Canada, the 88,000 acre Scotchman Peaks roadless area spans the Idaho-Montana border. Since the 1970s, when the U.S. Forest Service carried out extensive evaluations of lands suitable for wilderness, this rugged, scenic and biologically diverse portion of the Cabinet Mountains has been managed for its wilderness potential. The Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness is working to ensure permanent protection for the 88,000-acre Scotchman Peaks – one of the last and largest wild areas in the region – for the benefit of future generations.
