Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short canyon trail follows a portion of the Backbone
Trail past the seasonal Newton Creek, ending at the 30-foottall
Newton Canyon Falls. Though the falls will be dry in the
summer months, the hike still makes for a very peaceful trip,
culminating at a rocky grotto, perfect for picnicking."

"Tucked obscurely into an upper tributary of Zuma called Newton Canyon is a pint-sized but charming waterfall accessible by a mere half mile of hiking. Kids will enjoy this little trek, and their parents may feel the same as long as the kids duly observe a couple of safety rules, e.g., watch out for rattlesnakes and don’t get too close to precipices."
