Medicine Lake is an area of moderately sloping to steep mountains. It was formed by a volcano and is one of North America's most unique geological areas. One feature is that it has no known outlets but yet its water remains clean and clear. It lies within the volcanic caldera of the largest shield volcano in North America. Obsidian and pumice are common in the highlands. For thousands of years Native Americans have used these substances to make tools and other objects. More recently astronauts prepared in the pumice fields for their first landing on the moon. To get there from the town of Tulelake, take Highway 139 south and follow the signs to the Tulelake National Wildlife Refuge. Then go south through the Lava Beds National Monument. Follow the signs along Forest Road 49 to Medicine Lake. This route is part of the Modoc Volcanic Scenic Byway.
