The Wuksi Butte-Twin Lakes volcanic field is a 7-km-long N-S trending chain SW of Lookout Mountain consisting of scoria cones at the north and three tuff rings up to 1 km in diameter at the south. At one time considered to be of probable Holocene age (Smith et al.1978), the chain is now thought to have last been active during the latest Pleistocene--lava flows are overlain by a well-developed soil beneath the Mazama ash, suggesting that the volcanic chain is considerably older than 6800 years before present (Scott et al., 1989).
