A sparsely vegetated pyroclastic cone, Volcán Apagado, lies in the center of the peninsula between the Gulf of Ancud and the Reloncaví estuary. The volcano, also known as Hualiaque, is located west of Hornopirén volcano and SW of Yate volcano. The symmetrical cone contains a well-preserved summit crater. A 6-km-wide depression breached to the SW mentioned by González-Ferrán (1995) and a small lava flow from a second pyroclastic cone that was said to travel to the SW through a breach in the SW side of the depression are not prominent on satellite imagery. Scoria deposits from Volcán Apagado have a calibrated age of about 2500 years BP.
