Table Mountain, an andesitic stratovolcano at the NW corner of Lassen National Park, is an andesitic stratovolcano active about 1-2 million years ago. Red Lake Mountain, immediately to the NW of Table Mountain, is the source of youthful-looking basaltic and andesitic lava flows of late-Pleistocene age (Clynne, in Wood and Kienle 1990; Miller 1989).
