The mountain is situated west of the town of Quilcene, and northeast of Buckhorn Mountain and Iron Mountain. It is located inside the Buckhorn Wilderness, which borders Olympic National Park. It's the 27th highest peak in the Olympic mountains. The summit is a basalt fin. The Tubal Cain copper mine (early 1900's) sits at the north base of the mountain. Prominence: 498 feet.
