Alaska’s volcanic belt is part of the Pacific “Ring of Fire” and contains 70 potentially active volcanoes. It extends from Mount Spurr north of Lake Clark to Buldir Island in the western Aleutians. Within the Lake Clark region there are four active volcanoes. Mount Spurr, at 11,070 feet, lies just north of the park. Mount Redoubt, at 10,197 feet, and Mount Iliamna, at 10,016 feet in height.
