This peak is not in the book.
Scott Mountain is an active fire lookout located at the south end of the Log Mountain/Deadwood Ridge Divide. This is a rugged, wild area with many peaks ranging from 7,800-8,200 feet in elevation and a lot of exposed granite. Access to this area is via the Deadwood Reservoir Road [(D)(1.2) on Page 140]. The road to Scott Mountain leaves this road at its highest point, roughly 10.0 miles from the pavement. From the junction, it is 4.2 miles to the summit. USGS Lightning Ridge
Since a road leads to the top, I recommend a mountain bike ascent. The road from the junction is narrow but mostly smooth and without too many ups and downs. Dan Robbins hiked most of the road to the summit and his trip report is linked below. It will give you additional information that you may need to ascend this peak.
