Things to Do in Bend, OR - Explore the Newberry National Volcanic Monument

Venture into an otherworldly environment when you visit the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, located within Deschutes National Forest. This geological treasure is riddled with unique volcanic formations, including the longest known lava tube in the state of Oregon. You'll also find the Big Obsidian Flow, a 700-acre field of the black, shiny stone. Fish for trout in two different alpine lakes, and admire the Lava Butte - a 500-foot cinder cone. But the highlight of the Newberry National Volcanic Monument has to be the "crater" or caldera - a spectacular, circular formation that occurs when the top of a volcano collapses after the release of magma. The caldera here stretches across 17 miles through the heart of the park. Under the center, an active, 1200-square-mile volcano keeps geothermal scientists on their toes.

The Newberry National Volcanic Monument is one of the top attractions in Central Oregon, and is located about 23 miles south of Bend. Are you exploring this beautiful region this summer?
