Named “The Deschutes Formation,” these exposed layers of material were capped by lava flows from Cascade volcanoes three million years ago. This cap, known as “The Rimrock Basalt,” is visible throughout the park high atop the cliffs. Subsequent periods of water erosion and volcanic activity formed today's dramatic canyons and vertical cliffs. r Cr oo ke d Ri ve opportunities for year-round recreation amidst a scenic high desert canyon reservoir in central Oregon.
