Paulina Plunge @ Paulina Plunge
Aug 20 all-day

Paulina Plunge

The Paulina Plunge Downhill Waterfall Mt.Bike Tour is a wet and wild family adventure for all active ages 4 to 70. We will descend over six miles down a smooth forest trail, where our friendly guides will lead you to six pristine waterfalls and two natural water slides. Exploring this natural water park will be the highlight of your Central Oregon vacation.

Gravity will be your friend, as you descend deep into the Oregon back country. Along the way you will learn the legends of the ancient indigenous people and the saga of Chief Paulina. During the length of the trip, you will descend over 2,500 vertical feet on your mountain bike. That translates into four 1-1/2 mile biking segments to each waterfall stop. The group will visit up to 6 pristine waterfalls, ranging in height from 10 to 40 feet, as well as 2 safe natural waterslides to explore and play in.

This region is considered by archaeologists to be one of the richest sights in the Northwest. Native Americans have lived in the shadow of this dynamic volcano for at least 10,000 years. When the group arrives at the waterfalls below, we’ll indulge in the traditional Paulina Plunge and then break for a snack lunch.

TOUR COST: $65 per person for all ages. Recommended age 4-70 years. Mountain bike, helmet and day pack are included.

The BPTA has promised to raise $900K through grants, fundrais­ing and pri­vate dona­tions to fund the white­wa­ter fea­tures of the project. Cur­rently they have $300K more to go and they need your help. All funds raised at Pickin’ & Pad­dlin’ go towards this cause.

Paulina Plunge

The Paulina Plunge Downhill Waterfall Mt.Bike Tour is a wet and wild family adventure for all active ages 4 to 70. We will descend over six miles down a smooth forest trail, where our friendly guides will lead you to six pristine waterfalls and two natural water slides. Exploring this natural water park will be the highlight of your Central Oregon vacation.

Gravity will be your friend, as you descend deep into the Oregon back country. Along the way you will learn the legends of the ancient indigenous people and the saga of Chief Paulina. During the length of the trip, you will descend over 2,500 vertical feet on your mountain bike. That translates into four 1-1/2 mile biking segments to each waterfall stop. The group will visit up to 6 pristine waterfalls, ranging in height from 10 to 40 feet, as well as 2 safe natural waterslides to explore and play in.

This region is considered by archaeologists to be one of the richest sights in the Northwest. Native Americans have lived in the shadow of this dynamic volcano for at least 10,000 years. When the group arrives at the waterfalls below, we’ll indulge in the traditional Paulina Plunge and then break for a snack lunch.

TOUR COST: $65 per person for all ages. Recommended age 4-70 years. Mountain bike, helmet and day pack are included.

Pickin’ & Paddlin’ September 2014

What began as a cou­ple of kayak­ers pickin’ tunes on the back deck after a long day on the river, has grown into a huge com­mu­nity cel­e­bra­tion in to raise funds for the Bend Pad­dle Trail Alliance and their efforts to trans­form the Col­orado Bridge Dam into Oregon’s first white­wa­ter play­park. High­lights include kayak, canoe and stand up pad­dle board demos through­out the late after­noon, local and regional acoustic, blue­grass and Amer­i­cana acts in the evening, micro­brews from Bend’s best brew­eries, food carts, non-profit infor­ma­tion tables and more.

With the pas­sage of Bond Mea­sure 9–86 in Novem­ber of 2012, the major­ity of fund­ing was secured for Bend Parks & Rec to con­struct a safe pas­sage for tubers and a white­wa­ter play park in place of the mill-era dam below the Col­orado Bridge. The BPTA has promised to raise $900K through grants, fundrais­ing and pri­vate dona­tions to fund the white­wa­ter fea­tures of the project. Cur­rently they have $300K more to go and they need your help. All funds raised at Pickin’ & Pad­dlin’ go towards this cause.

Admis­sion: $5 and chil­dren 12 and under are free. Pint glasses are $10 and come with two drink tick­ets for those 21 and older

The Sep­tem­ber 24th event fea­tures Bend favorites Moon Moun­tain Ram­bers, The Pitch­fork Rev­o­lu­tion, and Lau­rel Brauns.

Times:
Demos from 4 – 7 p.m.
The opener begins play­ing at 5 p.m. and the head­liner is done by 9 p.m.

Spe­cial thanks to Deschutes Brew­ery and Cas­cade Lakes Brew­ing for donat­ing the kegs for this event.
