This is a good place for kids to come and explore. The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) ducks the western face of Potato Hill, but the gentle cone can be climbed without much effort or difficulty. The scramble to the top is worth the effort as it brings wonderful views of Mount Adams and the volcanic landscape of the country north of the mountain. One of the most impressive sights is the sprawling Muddy Fork Lava Bed that seems to flow from the perfect cone of Red Butte (7200 feet) on Adams’s northeast slope.
