Kinne­kul­le has a com­ple­te set of lay­ers fea­tu­ring all of the rocks found in the tab­le mountains: base­ment, sand­sto­ne, alum sha­le, limesto­ne, clay sha­le, and dole­ri­te. The dole­ri­te lay­er is very thin, however – only about 10 metres thick. That is why Kin­ne­kul­le has such a cha­rac­te­ristic coni­cal shape and lacks the big dole­ri­te pla­teau that many of the other mountains have.
