Road cuts on Syskiyou Summit on Interstate 5 a few miles north of the California-Oregon border beautifully expose the volcaniclastic Colestin formation. The Colestin formation is early Oligocene (~34-28 Ma) in age and represents volcanic and depositional events closely following the initiation of Cascade volcanism. Close to the town of Colestin, road cuts in this area are considered the type area of the Colestin formation.

This road cut exposes a variety of volcanic and volcaniclastic units, including volcanic breccias, lava flows, dikes, and pyroclastic units. Channel scours are common and represent the ability of lahars or debris flows to erode into underlying material.
