No end of things to see here. Lots of interpretive trails. My highlights include the ice cave, the views of the extensive lava flows from the cinder cone near the visitor center, and the hike down to Benham Falls on the Deschutes River. But for me, the best by far is Newberry Crater. A nice drive up and inside the... More

Great destination to see on our travels. Visitor center opens @ 10, so started @ another loop until it opened & used a very accessible paved trail to see a lot. Longer trail provided, but a bit harder for those with challenges. The volcanic rocks etc were fascinating. We like rocks! Then @ the center there was a lot of... More

The Newberry National Volcanic Monument is a beautiful spot in Central Oregon. It features wonderful views of the region and great camp sites. It also has one of my favorite places in the state, the Obsidian Flow. This spot features unique geological activity and a hiking trail that offers more specifics along the way. Their is also a beautiful lake... More

I saw Newberry Monument on a map, and decided it might be worth a look. So much to see and do. Lakes basin. Hike through caves. Drive to top of cinder cone. Obsidian hike is one of a kind.

It is a drive that will take you to a beautiful vista of East Lake, Paulina Lake and beyond. Not for those that are afraid of heights or narrow roads.

I vaguely knew about this place, but really had no idea how amazing it was going to be until we actually came to check it out. The whole sunken caldera area is worth seeing, but I have to say that the most spectacular sight of all was the BIG Obsidian Flow. I have never seen anything like that in my... More

This area doesn't attract as many tourists as other nearby spots but it has lots to offer. A drive up to a 360 degree viewpoint, fishing, hiking around two lakes, natural hot springs, lovely campgrounds, an amazing waterfall, and a great place to stay or just grab a meal at East Lake Resort. And it is all within an hour... More

We happened upon this on our way to Crater Lake. Pretty neat place to check out. Nice visitor center, picnic tables, hiking trail and a drive up the cone.

Go. That's all I can say. Go. You'll never see anything like this anywhere else. Hike to the top of the lava flow. Hike around Paulina Lake. Be in awe of God's power and wonder.
