If you like to hike and take pictures, this peak is for you. I had a great time and reached the summit in just under an hour.
Great day and perfectly clear morning views
Ran the 13.1 mile Crater Rim run in the morning, hiked up Mt. Scott with friends in the afternoon.
Very nice views.
I'm kind of casually working on the High Points of Counties that the PCT passes through, after hiking that in 2006. I was in such a hurry then that I didn't climb any of the peaks, so am now going back and doing some of them as I travel.
An easy hike with a nice wide trail most of the way. Looks like it gets lots of use.
This peak was not on my weekend itinerary. I was more focused on CoHPs and CoGPPs. But after a friend in Medford mentioned Mount Scott, and then *numerous* people I passed on Mount Thielsen mentioned Mount Scott, and then finally meeting two PCT section-hikers from Portland (Lisa Jo & Del) who offered to pay the national park entrance fee in exchange for me giving them a ride for ~15 miles... I soon found myself heading to Mount Scott.
There were several very small patches of snow remaining on the trail, but nothing to be concerned with. Very hot day. Great views from the summit.
This was the fifth of seven Top 100 peaks I summited in Oregon during a 3-1/2 day timeframe.
After completing our Thielsen climb the day before, this was a great reward hike for our Mazama climb group. We made a nice morning hike to the lookout tower and headed down as a group. The views are spectacular, but the chipmunks are a little aggressive.
Nice hike to stretch the legs. Awesome views.
nice view of the lake, easy trail up the mountain. some nice weather too.
Wife and I took the normal trail to the top (and with Ranger approval) went down the north side to camp out by Pothole spring. Nice hike up, great views.
nice hike moderate exertion but little guy (4 yearws old) was able to make it all the way up by himself too. Great views, this is really a special place.
Hiked this w/ my 12 week pregnant wife for a nice dayhike (she did a great job). Beautiful views of southern Oregon all the way up.
Short hike, with a good view
Jogged to summit and back in ~50 minutes capping off ~5k' and ~18miles of hiking for the day. Forest fire to the East and fiery sunset to the west made for dramatic views.
Easy hike with the family. Trip Report
Nice hike, pleasant weather, good view.
The hike took 52 minutes from the base of the trail to the peak. Great hike and a nice peak. The lookout on top has a great view of the lake and of the landscape to the East of the peak.
Nice little hike though I wasn't impressed with the views- much better from Watchman. Climbed in under 40 minutes without running.
Climbed Mr. Scott as a warm up hike for the following day, when I climbed from Tipsoo Peak over to Howlock Mountain via the Sawtooth Ridge. Full report is here: http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/642509/The-Holly-Sawtooth.html
