Inscription.

Cinder Cone
The cinder cone developed from a series of continuous mild volcanic explosions piling the debris on the surface surronding a volcanic vent. There are numerous cinder cones on the Cedar City Ranger District, many visible from the highway.

Lava Flows
These lava flows are very young 1,000-5,000 years. They come from vents not a central volcano. There are many land forms associated with the lava flows: lava tubes, cinder cones, sink holes and craters.
