The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Cinnamon Butte. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Cinnamon Butte page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

Cinnamon Butte (right center) rises above the shore of Diamond Lake, a popular recreation area north of Crater Lake. The volcano has a forest fire lookout tower at its summit and is the southernmost of three young cinder cones NNE of Diamond Lake. All three cones are older than the roughly 6850-year-old Mazama tephra from Crater Lake, but each has a well-preserved crater and may be of Holocene age. Lava flows from Cinnamon Butte traveled through gaps in late-Pleistocene glacial moraines.

Kelsay Point cinder cone, seen here from the SW, is the northernmost of a chain of three young cones constructed along a N-S-trending line NNE of Diamond Lake. The well-preserved summit crater of Kelsay Point is the site of a quarry for road aggregate. Each of the three cones is older than the roughly 6850-year-old Mazama tephra from Crater Lake, but has a well-preserved crater and may be of Holocene age.

Forested Thirsty Point cinder cone is the central of three young cinder cones constructed along a N-S-trending line NNE of Diamond Lake. Thirsty Point cone is the least accessible of the three cones and lacks a road to its summit. Each of the cones is older than the roughly 6850-year-old Mazama tephra from Crater Lake, but has a well-preserved crater and may be of Holocene age.
