Scott Mountain Trail - This trail travels south on the ridge between the East Fork of Anderson Creek and the Middle Fork of Big Pine Creek.

It quickly hits the main ridge, which was origionally a stock driveway then later became a fireline for the Anderson Creek Fire.

As the trail follows the ridge down it provides views of the Big Pine Creek drainage and the South Fork of the Payette River.

The trail ends in several old logging units in the upper end of Danskin Creek.
