Mount Scott is an volcanic cinder cone with its summit in Clackamas County, Oregon. The summit rises to an elevation of 1,091 feet (333 m).[1] It is part of the Boring Lava Field,[3] a zone of ancient volcanic activity in the area around Portland, and was named for Harvey W. Scott, a 19th and 20th century editor of The Oregonian newspaper.[3]

The mountain is developed, with most of its southern flank within the city of Happy Valley, Oregon. The Willamette National Cemetery is located on the northeastern slope of the mountain, which is partially in Multnomah County.
