Nahta Cone is a cinder cone in northern British Columbia, Canada, located 69 km (43 mi) southwest of Tatogga, 9 km (6 mi) north of Wetalth Ridge and south of Telegraph Creek. It lies in the southwestern corner of Mount Edziza Provincial Park.
Nahta Cone was named on January 2, 1980 by the Geological Survey of Canada after the last seven survivors of the Wetalth people, a group outcast or exiled from the Tahltans in time past. Nahta is a Tahltan word meaning seven.
Nahta Cone is one of the youngest volcanic features in the Spectrum Range which in turn form part of the Mount Edziza-Spectrum Range volcanic complex and the Northern Cordilleran Volcanic Province. It formed in the Holocene period.
