The Dittmar volcanic center is a massive eroded andesitic stratovolcano at the SE part of Lassen National Park that was active about 2.-5-1 million years ago (Clynne, 1990). Dacitic lava domes are located in the Hot Springs and Kings Creek canyons. The younger Mount Harkness stratovolcano lies immediately to the SE of the Dittmar volcanic center.
