not open sunrise to sunset. Opens at 0900 so don't plan on going to the top until it's at least 100 degrees out.

I was there a few years ago with my sister & family. What a breath taking view! Not so much fun driving up to the top tho.

I walked up Mt Scott and back down with two cousins. We sang 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall all the way up and all the way down. I was 16 at the time. Great memory.

I remember going to Mt. Scott with my grandmother when I was a kid. She loved to fish and we loved to play in the water. I remember how beautiful it was. I cant wait to see it again. Planning a trip in the Spring.

Mt Scott is 300' higher than the highest point in PA which is on I-80 near clear field. Hard to believe here on the plains. Look at the video.
