Moguri Oreum Volcanic Cone is located approximately 2.3 km northwest of Yeongjusan Mountain, which is in Seongeup-ri, Pyoseon-myeon.
On the right side of the three-way intersection where the road connecting Seongeup-ri and Susan-ri is divided into the access road to Nansan-ri is the mountain ridge with a gentle incline.
The ridge is bent in the shape of a half-moon to form a horseshoe-shaped crater that opens to the south to a great extent.
At the center of the horseshoe-shaped crater is a gentle hill that is in the form of a volcanic cone, which is quite curiously shaped.

The cone is not a typical cone-shaped, bumpy one but rather one that has its summit gently dented in. 

The cone forms a valley to the south (the direction of the collapse) where traces of lava flow remain distinctive. In addition, the end of the eastern wing of the Moguri Oreum Volcanic Cone forms a knoll and the part is also thought to be a separate crater given the shape of its gently dented summit. 

All slopes are covered in a forest of black pines and Japanese cedar, excluding some parts that are in the form of meadow-covered volcanic cones. 

A colony of Jejudo ladybell grows everywhere.
