Muddy Fork Lava Bed Trail

Muddy Fork Lava Bed Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Adams, at 12,276 feet, dominates the South Cascades and provides the most dramatic scenery of the region, thanks to the mountain’s mighty prominence. The mountain is a standout destination also for the massive basalt lava beds that cover large portions of the surrounding landscape.

This relatively young volcano initially formed nearly a million years ago, about 3 miles southeast of its current location. That first cone was ground down by glaciers during the long succession of ice ages that swept the region, while the “hot spot” that gave birth to the mountain shifted northwest as plate tectonics and continental drift rearranged the landscape."
