Paulina Falls (Summer 2019)

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

Paulina Falls is a double falls and is best viewed from the lower viewpoint. It’s a short hike but definitely worth it.

     

From the parking area get on the paved path that soon splits, go right first and quickly get to the upper viewpoint. It’s not the best view since it’s only of the top of the waterfalls. Head back the other way on the trail and it turns to dirt where you will take a long switchback down to a short bridge and the lower viewpoint. There are lots of downed trees and large rocks in the creek and the base of the waterfalls which are very interesting. Head back out the way you came in.

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.
