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.
