Jackies Butte, sometimes referred to as Bowden Crater, is a small, relatively unstudied basaltic volcanic field located near the SE corner of Oregon with two small shield volcanoes and two cinder cones. Lava flows cover an area of about 325 km2 E of the Bowden Hills, SE of Burns Junction on Highway 95, and SW of Owyhee Canyon. Smith et al. (1978) estimated a probable age of less than 10,000 years, but no precise age dates have been obtained. Sarna-Wojciki et al. (1983) did not include Jackies Butte in a list of Holocene volcanic fields.
