, known by some Native American tribes as Pahto
is a potentially active stratovolcano
in the Cascade Range
Although Adams has not erupted in more than 1,000 years, it is not considered extinct. It is the second-highest mountain
in the U.S. state
, after Mount Rainier
Adams is a member of the Cascade Volcanic Arc
, and is one of the arc's largest volcanoes,
located in a remote wilderness approximately 34 miles (55 km) east of Mount St. Helens
The Mount Adams Wilderness
consists of the upper and western part of the volcano's cone. The eastern side of the mountain is designated as part of the territory of the Yakama Nation
Adams' asymmetrical and broad body rises 1.5 miles (2.4 km) above the Cascade crest. Its nearly flat summit was formed as a result of cone-building eruptions from separated vents. Air travelers flying the busy routes above the area sometimes confuse Mount Adams with nearby Mount Rainier
, which has a similar flat-topped shape.
The Pacific Crest Trail
traverses the western flank of the mountain.
