Mount Linn, at 8,098 feet (2,468 m), is the easternmost summit on South Yolla Bolly Mountain, and is located in the Northern Coast Ranges of California in the Yolla Bolly-Middle Eel Wilderness. The summit is the highest point in the Northern Coast Ranges south of the Trinity Alps of the Klamath Mountains.[1] The elevation of the mountain allows it to receive heavy winter snowfall and it has low average annual temperature near the summit.[3]

A tarn named Square Lake is located in a cirques on Mount Linn's north slope.[4] The cirques was carved by glaciers during the Ice Age.

The mountain was named by John C. Frémont in honor of Lewis F. Linn, a senator from Missouri, who played an important roll in the acquisition of the Oregon Territory.[5]
