The part to the mere east of the Modoc National Forest, separated from the rest by Goose Lake (Laguna de Ganso) covers the Warner Mountains (Sierra de Warner), which is a spur of the great Cascade Range. Across the Warner Mountains is the Surpise Valley near the Nevada border.

The other part consists of three districts: the Devil's Garden, the Doublehead, and the Big Valley. There is a mount of Juniperus occidentalis. There is also quite a bit of pine ( Pinus ponderosa ) and spruce ( Abies concolor ). Bushes in the area include "bitterbrush" (bitter chaparro - Purshia tridentata ) and "sagebrush" (chamiza - Artemisia tridentata).
