With an elevation of 6,868 feet above sea level, it rises 1,900 feet above State Highway 118, four miles east. Cathedral Mountain is an intrusive mass of igneous rock that has been exposed by erosion. Its shallow, stony soils support Douglas fir, aspen, Arizona cypress, maple, ponderosa pine, and madrone.
