The Cinder Butte shield volcano and flank pyroclastic cones was listed as latest Pleistocene or Holocene (Sarna-Wojcicki et al. 1983), and as Holocene by Luedke and Smith (1981) and Miller (1989). However, Clynne (in Wood and Kienle 1990) indicated Cinder Butte is slightly older than the Hat Creek lava flow, assigned an age of between 15,000 and 40,000 years (Clynne and Muffler, 2010), and Clynne et al. (2012) assigned an age of 30,000 to 50,000 years to the Cinder Butte cone cluster.
