RedwicWashboard Road From H-E-Double Hockey Sticks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2012

I was already heading north to Bend, and it was not quite sunset, so I took a nice side-trip to Newberry Crater and Paulina Peak. Nice views at the top. It was really interesting to see the massive lake-filled caldera remnant, below. Make certain to scurry ~14' up the nearby rock outcrop to the true highpoint.

The Paulina Peak Road is the one deterrant for this peak. The road was in good condition... except for the nearly four miles of almost constant washboard effect. It was shaking my car like crazy; my car felt like a human popcorn maker.

This was the sixth of seven Top 100 Oregon peaks I summited during a 3-1/2 day timeframe.

Took the kids up on a hot sunny day and encountered the biggest hail I've ever seen. Awesome.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2011
Hour and 20 minutes up and the same down. Nice walk for the mountain we had been on (closed to cars still). Summit was gorgeous with great views of the cascades from Adams to Thielsen. Very nice place.

After heading up to the summit of South Sister in the morning we drove up to the summit of Paulina Peak. Amazing view of the lakes and crater.

I was working down here in Oregon, so when I got off early I drove up Paulina. I would have hiked it if I had the time.

My family wanted to visit Oregon and we just happened upon this gem on our drive south. It was a hard fifteen step climb to the top with a most stupendous view of the inside of a cloud.

I did not feel successful, but at 7,985 feet, I guess it was a summit.

Found a spot to park about 3/4 of a mile short of the summit and rode the rest of the way up. Great views of the caldera and lakes. Don't expect solitude on a nice sunny late summer day. Probably 50+ people on top. Still a nice end to a great 4 day trip.

Date is a bit of a guess. I was staying at the Paulina Lodge, while working on a scientific drilling project. Wife and I walked to the top.

I cheated, but the parents were in town. A great view of the lava flows, lakes and across the valley to the Sisters. A very unique place.

I had originally planned a climb of broken top mountain but the three sisters were closed due to forest fires. I had never visited newberry crater. It was time to give the park it"s due. I had driven most of the morning and Paulina peak does have a road to the summit. I parked at the trailhead for the peak down on the main park road and hiked the approximatly three miles to the summit. A good aerobic workout with summits to scramble to on the north side of the peak. I proceeded over to where people drive there cars and mingled with other tourists. I found that thr restrooms on top of Paulina peak are the highest public restrooms in Oregon. The views of the caldera and cascades to the west are awesome. I really enjoyed my visit.

Why hike when you can drive. Best way to get my wife to see the views. Besides, there are plenty of other peaks around to inflict suffering upon myself. Beautiful views of Paulina Lake and East Lake as well as the Big Obsidian Flow.

I visited this peak with my 8-year old daughter Jackie. We found the benchmark on the peak and got some good photos. Others in our group didn't make the effort to come up from the parking lot. We got a good view of East Lake and the obsidian flow that we had explored earlier on foot. Newberry Crater is a National Monument worth visiting.
