The small Forest Road lava flow that was erupted from fissures on the central NW rift zone was radiocarbon dated at about 5960 years before present.  This lava flow, one of the smallest from the NW rift zone of Newberry volcano, originated from a fissure vent immediately NW of the Lava Cast Forest flow.
