Caption

This cone is called “Lava Butte”. It rises 500 feet above the visitor center. This cinder cone erupted 7,000 years ago and covered over nine square miles with lava. The butte offers a panoramic view of central Oregon, including a spectacular view of the Cascade Range and the northwest flank of Newberry. The Lava Butte interpretive trail circles the crater rim. We walked this rim and were in awe of the geologic power that still exists today. One of the local eruptions changed the Deschutes River in three locations; each spot now sporting a waterfall or two. The blackness of the lava is in strict contrast of the trees surrounding the flow.

The flow transported immense amounts of lava over the forest. Even modern-day transportation must work around the lava flow. Luckily, though, the lava is also used in making of the roads.
