Oregon’s fiery past surrounds visitors at Newberry National Volcanic Monument, smack in the center of a volcano that some suspect is still active. Start out at the Lava Lands Visitor Center to view the interpretive exhibits. Then take the 50-minute shuttle-bus tour to the summit of Lava Butte, a 500-foot cinder cone. The trip costs $2 for adults and teenagers and $1.50 for seniors and children 6 to 12. It includes a talk on geology and a 30-minute break on top to allow time for hiking around the summit crater.
