THE PEAKS IN THE CENTRAL OREGON SIX-PACK OF PEAKS CHALLENGE
PAULINA PEAK - Elevation 7,989' (2,434 m)
Paulina Peak is the highest point on Newberry Crater, one of the largest shield volcanos in North America. The summit sits on the edge of a 21 mile-long crater rim. The geology of the area is fascinating. Well east of the Cascades, Paulina Peak offers views that extend from Mount Shasta to Mount Adams.

Black Butte is an extinct stratovolcano that sits east of the Cascades, rising 3,076′ above the surrounding plain. This symmetrical cone-shaped butte is home to an active fire lookout tower, as well as a historic cupola that you can easily imagine must have been the coolest summer digs ever, with spectacular views of Mt Washington, The Sisters and beyond.
