Volcán Hornopirén, located SSW of Yate volcano, is a morphologically youthful basaltic-andesite stratovolcano that is mostly forested. The 1572-m-high volcano, whose name means "snow oven," lies along a graben defined by the major regional Liquiñe-Ofqui fault zone, north of the Hornopirén strait and immediately south of Lago Cabrera. Prominent lava flows descend beyond the SW base of the volcano and overlie the graben floor. The volcano was said to be in eruption in 1835, although no details are known.
