Mount Martin is a large glacier-mantled stratovolcano that anchors the SW end of NE-SW-trending chain of volcanoes cutting across Katmai National Park. A large postglacial lava flow extends 12 km to the NW. A 500-m-wide summit crater is largely ice-free because of strong fumarolic activity. This 1978 view looks down the long axis of elongated Mount Martin from the NE.
