This is just the third time I hiked Scotchman Peak. After a weekend of driving and road closures, I decided to play it safe on Sunday and just return to Scotchman Peak for a good workout. I had some errands to run in the afternoon anyway and needed to be back in Sandpoint, Idaho, at a reasonable time. Despite having hiked this peak twice before, I still enjoyed the trip and scenery. I made the summit in 2 hours and spent 50 minutes on top. The round trip time was 4 hours and 30 minutes, so I only picked up 20 minutes on the descent which took me 1 hour and 40 minutes.
