The mesa gets its name as it is capped by erosion resistant basaltic lava formed by a volcanic eruption approximately 3 to 5 million years ago. The lava erupted from a vent in the Raton-Clayton volcanic field in northeastern New Mexico and southeastern Colorado. The area has produced evidence of numerous dinosaurs, Plains Indians, Coronado the Spanish Conquistador, Santa Fe Trail travelers, outlaws and now ranchers.
