Great displays, informative rangers and lots to see. Fascinating place to visit. Take the shuttle to the top of the cinder cone for some great views!

We were only there long enough to stop at the visitors center and then drive up to take in the view at Paulina Peak. Worth the stop! Amazing views and very interesting to learn about the volcano. Our 5yr old daughter loved it.

If you're going to see this amazing place you must stay for at least three nights during the summer to enjoy everything it has to offer. I don't know how this place is in winter. We have yet to find out ourselves.

The short hike at the Big Lava Flow is certainly worth it. Tons of obsidian to see and touch (but not take). On another visit we had rented a canoe at East Lake and paddled around to our heart's content. Lots to do here. You...More

There is so much to do in this area. Leaving the lava caves one of the rangers suggested we stop at Paulina Falls and the Obsidian flow area. Both are worth the stops. Paulina Falls is an easy, very short hike and the falls are...More

We ended up spending 2 days in the area after planning it to just be a short sightseeing stop. They have it all, obsidian field, cave, hot spring in the lake. If you see it as a short stop on the map, take another look.

First of all I was quite confused what the Newberry National Volcanic Monument was and I think the name is the problem. A monument is typically a structure like a statue or a building, so I thought there was some sort of building in the...More

We were camped nearby at LaPine State Park and looking for something fun to do. Newberry came up on the map so we checked it out. The drive was beautiful and included two lakes. There were a few long hikes available, but we choose to...More

It would be best to call the lava lands national monument ranger station for that info. Best guess is that Newberry will be inaccessible.

You can see a lot right off of Hwy 97 at the Lava Butte exit. Lava Butte has an easy path through lava fields, preserved trees and spectacular Cascade views. There's also a great paved bike path to a river trail and paved... More
