- There are at least 16 major Cascades volcanoes
- Not shown on map are smaller eruptive centers that fill in between the larger volcanoes
- Mt. St. Helens erupted the most recently, but others have had activity in past few centuries.
- The eruptive history of Mt. St. Helens is the most studied of the volcanoes, so it appears to have the most eruptions on its timeline. As more is learned about the age of eruptions at the others, they, too, will have more volcano icons on their timelines.
