The Lake County web site states: "Mt. Konocti’s surface varies with elevation and exposure. The south slope of the mountain is covered with 12 square miles of black obsidian. At the bottom of the north face, a Douglas fir forest is dense and cool. The first homesteader’s cabin on the mountain, built by Mary Downen in 1903, still stands. Orchards and vineyards thrive in the volcanic soil in a multitude of microclimates, and a grove of ancient maul oaks near the summit date back more than 500 years."
