| Elevation:||7009 ft / 2136 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI woke up from my hot night in the back of my car and drove down the Lightning Creek Road in the foothills of the Cabinet Mountains of Idaho and then up the Mosquito Creek Road, a dusty, rocky dirt road that led me to signs pointing up really narrow and rutted logging roads to the trailhead for the Scotchman Peak trail. I hated to abuse my car like this, but it's the price you pay for doing serious exploration of western mountains.
I then climbed Scotchman Peak, the highest point in the Idaho section of the Cabinet Mountains, but lower than many peaks just over the border in Montana. Although only 7,007 feet high, the trail gained 3700 feet, mostly though forest. I climbed up from 7 to 9 AM, at a rate of 1850 vertical feet per hour (this was my first hike after Rainier, which had really gotten me into shape!) and then spent half an hour on the fly-infested summit that nevertheless provided nice views of the Montana Cabinets and large Lake Pend Orielle under partly cloudy skies. I hiked down the easy, almost Appalachian-style trail and was back at my dusty car by 11:20 AM. It was another hot, humid day, but starting to get quite overcast, and I didn't see another soul during my whole hike.
