This quadrangle is located in central Utah within the eastern Basin and Range Province, and includes the west-central part of Utah Lake in western Utah Valley, the eastern edge of the Lake Mountains near Little Cove, and Lincoln Point at the northern tip of West Mountain. Bedrock near Little Cove includes Mississippian-age sedimentary strata on the eastern limb of the Lake Mountains syncline, and bedrock near Lincoln Point includes Pennsylvanian-age sedimentary strata on the limbs of an overturned anticline. Sedimentary rocks lf Late Cretaceous to Paleocene (?) age cap the upper part of the point. The majority of the quadrangle is covered by Utah Lake, which is underlain by normal faults that form the western boundary of Utah Valley. Surficial deposits along the lake shore are primarily associated with lacustrine deposition from Holocene Utah Lake and its precursor, late Pleistocene Lake Bonneville.
