In the Sierra Nevada, Mount Williamson is second in height only to Mount Whitney, 6 miles to the south, and the size of its massif is exceeded only by that of Mount Shasta, one of the largest stratovolcanoes in the world. Mount Williamson dominates the region, and its immense North Fork Bairs Creek Glacial Cirque and headwall couloir are impressive sights even when viewed from Highway 395.
