GeographyEdit

The park is dominated by the Mount Edziza volcanic complex, a large group of overlapping shield volcanoes, stratovolcanoes, cinder cones, lava domes and calderas oriented in a north−south trending line. It includes Mount Edziza at its northern end and the Spectrum Range at its southern end, both of which are within the boundaries of Mount Edziza Provincial Park.
