Mount Scott History
Mount Scott is a volcanic cinder cone with its summit in Clackamas County, Oregon. The Mountain stands prominently in a zone of ancient volcanic activity in the area around the Willamette Valley and what is now the Greater Portland area. This community owes its name to Harvey W. Scott; a noteworthy editor of the Oregonian Newspaper during the 19th and 20th centuries. The mountain’s summit rises to an elevation of 1,091 feet (333 m) and is a part of the Boring Lava Field.
The mountain is developed, with most of its southern flank within the city of Happy Valley, Oregon while the northeastern slope of the mountain lies partly in Multnomah County.
