There are no Holocene eruptions known for Cinnamon Butte. If this volcano has had large eruptions prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The following references are the sources used for data regarding this volcano. References are linked directly to our volcano data file. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title. Additional discussion of data sources can be found under Volcano Data Criteria.

Cinnamon Butte, Thirsty Point, and Kelsay Point are forested cinder cones along a WNW-ESE line immediately west of the Cascade crest and NE of Diamond Lake. The cones have well-preserved summit craters, and lava flows appear to be unglaciated, suggesting they are younger than 11,000 years (Sherrod, 1991). Lava flows from Cinnamon Butte pass through gaps of late-Pleistocene moraines, although all three cones are mantled by and thus older than the roughly 6845-year-old Mazama Ash associated with the formation of nearby Crater Lake caldera. Other cinder cones and a lava dome of Pleistocene age are located nearby, mostly west of the Cascade Range crest.
