Steam plumes waft up from the ridgetops of the Mayacmas Mountain Range along the Lake- Sonoma County line, vestiges of Lake County’s volcanic past. A large chamber of magma lies about 4+ miles beneath Mount Hannah and is associated with volcanic activity dating from approximately 1 million years ago. Visitors in the 19th century enjoyed hot springs spas; today The Geysers is known as the world’s largest geothermal area. Visit the Calpine Geothermal Visitor Center in Middletown to view exhibits showing how hilltop plants produce superheated steam and harvest this clean, renewable, and natural energy source. Phone for hours when the exhibits are open.
