Newberry Country Trail

Welcome to Newberry!

Explore Oregon's Three Craters

Fashioned after the historical emigrant trails, such as the Oregon and Santa Fe trails, the Newberry Country Trail is a car (or vehicle of your choice) tour of unique communities, geologic sites, museums, and points of interest. If you were to drive without stopping, it originally was a “class-three-hour tour” where you want to take the time to stop and learn and visit. On our three loop tour — Cascade Lakes, High Desert, and Crater Lake loops — you might “come here to play and move here to stay.” La Pine is the “heart of the trail” and a great place to start your adventure!

Your Tour Starts Here

Why is La Pine so important to the trail? The little town of La Pine is only four miles south of the turn-off into the crater. It is at the edge of the city limits, We live here and know about all the natural attractions for the area. Including the communities of Sunriver, Crescent Lake, Gilchrist/Crescent, Chemult and Chiloquin, Fort Rock, Christmas Valley, Silver Lake, Summer Lake, and finally Paisley. We have joined together to celebrate our national monument and our national park.

Known as the trailhead of the Newberry Country Trail (NCT), La Pine has everything a traveler needs and more. Lodging, gas, grocery stores, medical services, fire services, sporting goods, hardware, and activities open to residents and visitors twelve months out of the year. Come and play in La Pine!
