Newberry National Volcanic Monument

Newberry National Volcanic National Monument was designated in November 1990 and includes 50,000+ acres of lakes, lava flows, and spectacular geologic features in central Oregon. The highest point within the Monument is the summit Paulina Peak (7,985 ft.), with views of the Oregon Cascades and the High Desert. The summit area of Newberry Volcano holds two alpine lakes full of trout and salmon.

The monument was created within the boundaries of the Deschutes National Forest and is managed by the U.S. Forest Service.
