China Hat and China Cap are rhyolite domes that formed around older volcano lava flows. There are many faults located in the area which have had a part in forming these land forms as well as multiple “grabens”. This is also a great Bird Watching area. The best bird viewing is in the Spring and Fall. Birds include Raptors, Shorebirds and Songbirds.
