About The Paulina Plunge
The Paulina Plunge Downhill Waterfall Mt. Bike Tour is a wet and wild family adventure for all ages from 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.
Gravity will be your friend as you descend deep into the Oregon back country, on your Fat Tire Mt.Bike. Only here will you discover the grandeur of the Paulina Mountains and the secrets of Chief Paulina’s water slide. 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 2,000 vertical feet, on your Fat Bike. That translates into four 1-1/2 mile downhill biking segments to each waterfall stop. The group will visit up to six pristine waterfalls ranging in height from 10 to 40 feet, including two safe natural water slides to explore and play on. Two short energetic nature hikes, at a distance of half mile each, will be required to reach the bubbling falls and slides below. This safe fun family excursion is suitable for all active ages 4 to 70 years young with confident beginner to intermediate biking skills. Trail-A-Bike Tandems for non-riding kids 4 to 8 years are available.
Learn the legends of Chief Paulina as you travel in his footsteps. Our guides will share their knowledge of the local history and geology as you travel to the waterfalls. Exploring this natural water park will be the highlight of your Central Oregon vacation. You’ll have the time of your life!
We provide mountain bikes, helmets and a day pack for each family or group. You’re welcome to bring your own lunch or purchase one from our staff.
