You can park right off 97. Ride out about 20 miles to East Lake, past Paulina Lake and Paulina Peak and back. Good climb and not too far from Bend. There will be traffic, because of campgrounds, hikers, et al. You ride on shoulder, which feels quite safe.

CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Newberry National Volcanic Monument (est. 1990)

Ride 18.4 miles gaining 2,600’ at 2.4% average grade.

The Newberry National Volcanic Monument is a sprawling 54,000 acres of lakes, lava flows, and unusual geologic features extending between Bend OR and La Pine OR adjacent to U.S. Highway 97.

The climb to the twin craters of Paulina Lake (6,331 ft.) and East Lake (6,400 ft.) is a steady 18-mile, 2,200-foot ascent, ending at an assortment of campgrounds and modest resorts.

The ride begins at the intersection of U.S. Highway 97 and Paulina Lake Road (Road 21), just south of the resort community of Sunriver OR.  The gentle grade soon becomes quite steady.
