Lava Cast Forest

The various flows of the Lava Cast Forest were all erupted from the Northwest Rift Zone of Newberry Volcano.

 

An area where hot molten lava erupted from the northwest flank of Newberry Volcano and engulfed a forest here 7,000 years ago. The landscape now includes the "casts" or molds, of these ancient trees.
