Hutchinson Hill is a low profile shield volcano (elevation 30 m) located on Northeast Point and viewed here from North Beach. Hutchinson Hill's vent area is constructed of scoria and welded spatter covered by dozens of thin (<1 m) layers of basaltic lava flows that dip gently away from the summit. Hutchinson Hill and its surrounding lava flows form Northeast Point of St. Paul Island.
