Modoc National Forest

Modoc National Forest

The Modoc National Forest is a 1,654,392-acre (6,695 km2) national forest in northeastern California.

Most of the forest was covered by an immense lava flow millions of years ago.

The eastern part of the forest east of Alturas contains a spur of the Cascade Range to the north known as the Warner Mountains. The Warner Mountains drop steeply on the eastern slopes, whereas the western flank has a more gentle topography.
