Welcome to Sciots Tract
Sciots Tract is a unique group of 77 cabins located between 5600 and 6000 feet elevation in the Eldorado National Forest in central California. The comradery is unsurpassed. The original lease was signed with the forest service on October 17, 1921. The organization that founded the tract had the motto of “Boost One Another” and to this day this seems to be the feel of Sciots Tract.
Over the years the cabin owners have bound together and taken on some very large projects. The first was the building of a bridge across the American River. The first bridge was a wooden structure that was washed out in 1938 by high water. The replacement is a metal bridge that has recently been deemed “highway safe” by the state highway department.
These same hardy cabin owners built a clubhouse in 1924-25 that is approximately 50 feet by 80 feet. It has been maintained in excellent condition to this day. This clubhouse, which contains a full kitchen, is host to potlucks, brunches, meetings, a bean feed, an Independence Day picnic, a spaghetti dinner, a pizza party, a tri-tip barbecue, weddings and anniversary parties for the cabin owners and our neighbors.
