Bald Knoll volcano

cinder cones 2135 m / 7,005 ft
Utah, Canada and USA (mainland), 37.33°N / -112.41°W
Current status: normal or dormant (1 out of 5)

Bald Knoll is the youngest of a group of basaltic cinder cones on the SW part of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in southern Utah, between the southern end of Bryce Canyon National Park and the western margin of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
The Bald Knoll cinder cone probably erupted only a few thousands years ago. It has an intact crater, which has produced a massive youthful-looking lava flow that traveled about 12 km to the SSE.
Buck Knoll and Black Knoll are 2 other cinder cones to the west, located on the western side of Kanab Creek.
