Spend 1 day visiting/ hiking in the Monument. Start at the visitor center or if you stopped first the falls .Then the Obsidian Flow hike is easy. And really no need to go to the end of the road unless you want to go to the marina. Leave time for a hike around Lake Paulina or at least to the... More

We took the tour bus to the top and the views was amazing. We hiked around the rim of the Lava Butte. The view was so beautiful.

Much to learn about volcanoes and lava at this place, not something I'm usually interested in. It is massive, the lava flow. Pay $5 for entry to the park. Then $2 for a mini-bus to the top. The bus returns every 20 minutes so time for a quick walk around from a good vantage point. The bus smelled very badly... More

Phenomenal, huge mounds of obsidian rocks like you've never seen before. Short 1 mile hike around this mound of black glass is definitely a must! No dogs allowed because of broken obsidian glass on trail. Do not wear flip-flops or open toed shoes.

This is an absolute must while in Bend. Shuttle to the top is $2 and so worth it. 360 degree views of amazing natural landscape.

OK, you won't find flowing lava at Newberry National Volcanic Monument, but what you will see is mind-blowing evidence of what volcanic activity can do to the landscape. This is a geological Disneyland that costs a ridiculously low $5 to see. Plan to spend a full day here (there is enough to see to take 2 days if you have... More

Newberry Volcano is a shield volcano in Oregon. One can take a shuttle bus to the top for a very nice view. There is a small fee for the shuttle and also to enter the Newberry National Volcanic Monument area.

Great half day trip. Started at lava visitor center. Did the walk around of the lava and went up to the point. Nice easy hike. Beautiful view of Newberry. Drove up to Obsidian point for the view then to Pauline lake. Had a little picnic. Soaked out feet in the lake and then on to the Pauline falls.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument is a breath taking place. Also, a visitor can find lots of information regarding volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago and how affected the surrounding area. It is located about 40 minutes drive from Bend.
