    Mount Hood is a stratovolcano in northern Oregon, belonging to the Volcanic arch of the Cascade Range. It is the highest mountain peak in the state and one of the highest mountains of the country (the fourth highest peak in the Cascade Mountains). Its official height during the history of the measurements was a subject to changes - 3429 m in 1991 and 3426 m few years later. The peak area hosts 12 glaciers and snow fields. Considered an active and potentially dangerous volcano, though the story of its eruptions does not confirm its danger. The likelihood of significant activity in the next 30 years is estimated as being as high as 3-7%. Located in the National Park "Mount Hood", one of its impressive features are 1900 km of hiking trails and climbing. The mountain and surrounding areas have six ski resorts: Timberline, Mount Hood Meadows, Ski Bowl, Cooper Spur, Snow Bunny and Summit.
