Paulina Plunge @ Paulina Plunge
Jun 25 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.

Paulina Plunge @ Paulina Plunge

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.
