Paulina Falls (Summer)

Paulina Falls is located in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument which is in La Pine, Oregon.

Paulina Creek Falls is located near Paulina Lodge and would make for a easy few mile hike if you are staying at the lake. We were staying at East Lake so we decided to drive.

Paulina Falls is a double falls and there are also two viewpoints for the falls. The upper viewpoint is a short walk from the parking lot but really isn’t that great of a view. The lower viewpoint is by far the best way to take in the falls. It’s about a half mile of long switchbacks that drops you at the base of the falls.
