A group of basaltic cinder cones and lava vents on the Markagunt Plateau east of Cedar Breaks National Monument has produced youthful, sparsely vegetated lava flows. Several lines of NE-SW-trending cinder cones are present within the volcanic field, with the youngest flows occurring near Panguitch Lake on the north and Navajo Lake on the south. Navajo Lake (upper right) formed when a thick, blocky flow from a nearby vent dammed Duck Creek. The oldest trees on the youngest flows are about 900 years old.
