We visited the Paulina Falls and Big Obsidian Flow after going to the Lava Lands Visitor Center, which is about 20 minutes away. Definitely worth to see both to understand the vast extent of the Newberry Volcano. However, you'll have to learn about it mostly on your own with the provided plaques as there were no people about that worked... More

This hike was amazing! You get to hike up on top of the world in the Bend area. Bend has many beautiful nature hikes and things to see!

This is a great place to go camping or for just a day trip. We used to make it an annual trip to take our horses to the Chief Paulina Horse Camp and had a thoroughly wonderful time. Lots of riding trails and decent corrals. Every site has 2 or 4 individual 10x10 corrals. Unfortunately our horses are too old... More

If you love views of nature, visit Newberry! Looks like an artificial movie set but it's all real and produced by nature. Awesome to visualize how it came to be.

I was scouting locations for next summer to hike and kayak with a friend of mine. We decided to drive to the top and check it out. The views were breath taking but the trails looked a little scary to me. Don't think I'll be hiking up this high and on such a steep trail. You hurt more when you... More

Great short hikes/walks and amazing views. Fun for families! Get out and see some cool stuff not far out of town, and learn about the area at the same time.

We hiked here two days. The Visitor Center was closed and Paulina Lake area was closed. WIsh I knew why. It didn't stop us. We parked our car and walked to the waterfall which was a pleasant walk. We parked near the closed Visitor Center and walked on the Lava Land trail. Our last hike on a volcano was in... More

After Crater Lake, it was a letdown for this old hiker. Cascade Loop was no big deal, great for RV's & fishing. Paulina Rd got snowy & foggy at viewpoint. Falls were nice Go to Oregon Caves, not here.
