Geologists say the volcanic activity of this area occurred less than 6000 years ago. Lava which exuded from the south side of this butte flowed to the west and blocked the Deschutes River, deflecting it from its former channel. This formed the Benham, Dillon, and Lava Falls of the river.
?????This butte was first used as a Forest Service lookout station in 1928.
