Mountain’s slopes are covered with coniferous forests, from 2000 meters start alpine meadows and moraines, in adjacent areas a system of hundreds of deep and spacious caverns is formed. Volcano’s summit is almost completely flat, on a fine day from there opens a view to all neighboring volcanoes of the Cascade Mountains. Despite the reputation of the "family" mountain among pro climbers, you have to keep in mind the possible dangers and risks: earthquakes, avalanches and mudslides are not excluded from happening. During recent years one of its craters had been producing weak activity as well.
