We booked this trip with our grandsons partly in reliance upon the website's promise of educational facts about the area's indigenous peoples. To quote: "Only here will you discover the grandeur of the Paulina Mountains and the secrets of Chief Paulina’s waterslide. Along the way you will learn the legends of the ancient indigenous people and the saga of Chief... More

This was the highlight of our vacation. Everyone had a bike and it was almost all downhill. Easy riding with an awesome view. There were stops along the way where we could play in the waterfalls. It was cold but felt good on a hot July day. Need a decent pair of shoes that can be used for biking and... More

We had 3 kids (9, 6 & 6) - one on a tow bike and 2 on their own. Our guides Cole and Nick were amazing and helpful the whole day. Our little guy had a tough time at the beginning on the bike but the guides were so encouraging that he rallied and did great! The falls and vistas... More

Our family had a great experience! Nick (our guide) was great, fun, told stories that were family appropriate. He let the more aggressive riders go first so they (we) could ride fast and almost out of control. The fat tire bikes are so fun, if you have never ridden them they make mt biking feel more secure. You ride some... More

We went with another family, so there was seven in our group. Four parents and three children under the age of nine. Our group was added to a much larger group. The tour meets at the office, boards a bus and then rides up the mountain to where you meet your guides and are matched with a fat tire mountain... More

This is a beautiful experience. We were provided mountain bikes and rode mostly down hill to several waterfalls where we could stop and play in the water. Our guides, Mark and Ryan, were very friendly, knowledgeable, and great with kids. Highly recommended!

This was an incredible bike ride down a mountain with stops for a dip in the river. There were even water slides. The view from look out point was amazing. Our guides, Cole and Jared, were over the top kind, knowledgeable and helpful to all in our group.

We did the Paulina Plunge Saturday, July 30th and it was easily one of the most enjoyable things we've done in the 20 years we've been coming to Central Oregon. Nick (the white guy with dreadlocks) was our guide and he was funny but also very educated about the mountains and surroundings. Some of the hikes into the waterfalls aren't... More

12 of us (8-66) signed up for the Paulina Plunge adventure and had a great time. The biking was easy with the fat tire bikes and the trails are all groomed. We made three stops at places on the river and they were all great. The water was refreshing. Make sure you wear shoes. The guides were very nice and... More
