The summit rises to an elevation of 9,037 feet (2,754 m), and is the highest point in Trinity County, the ninth most prominent peak in California, and the highest summit west of Interstate 5 in the United States.
The mountain receives heavy snowfall during the winter due to its altitude.
The mountain is named in honor of Olive Paddock Eddy, who is mistakenly held to be the first woman to climb Mt. Shasta. She was actually 8 months pregnant at the time that she is credited with climbing the volcano. Harriet Catherine Eddy was actually the first woman to summit the mountain. Nelson Harvey Eddy arrived in the area from New York State in 1856. He later became a successful rancher in the Shasta Valley. The original, Wintu, name might have been Num-mel-be-le-sas-pam or "west blaze mountain".
