Whaleback Mountain

Description

This shield volcano is composed of dark basaltic andesite, and has 4 cinder cones (and 4 craters) that appear from a distance as two mounds--giving the mountain its distinct whaleback shape. It stands at 8,344 ft. There is an excellent hang and paragliding site on the mountain, which operates under a special use permit from the Forest Service.
