The western portion of the Panguitch NW quadrangle lies in the northeastern corner of the Markagunt Plateau and the eastern portion in the Sevier Valley within the High Plateaus subprovince ofthe Colorado Plateaus physiographic province. The High Plateaus are north-trending, flat-topped mountain masses, separated by intermontane valleys. In many ways, the High Plateaus are transitional between the Colorado Plateaus to the east and the Basin and Range province to the west; their stratigraphy is similar in many aspects to that of both provinces, whereas physiographically they display the elevation and high relief of the former and structurally they resemble the latter. The geology of the central High Plateaus is dominated by the Marysvale volcanic field of Tertiary age, one of the largest eruptive piles in the western United States. The Panguitch NW quadrangle lies on the southern flank of the Marysvale field.
