Trail Information

Highlights

Only 25 miles north of Lucerne Valley lies the Newberry & Rodman Mountains. This unique landscape is almost extraterrestrial in character with ancient lava flows, colorful escarpments, calico-colored mountains and maze-like canyons all coming together in this majestic place. Steep canyons and cliff-like walls form dry falls along deep drainage channels, creating cascades during heavy rain storms. Newberry Springs Fall is the largest and highest dry fall in this area and a must see for any adventurist. Please be aware that the last section of the trail is closed to motorized vehicles so be prepared to do a quick and easy hike to the end of the trail and experience the view first hand.

Great views towards the end. Good conditions. You can connect to the freeway to Bagdad Cafe if you need to bail out or get gas. The wash to get there is not that easy to follow, not many cars drive through that wash. Better use Troy road instead.

Trail is open and the conditions are the same as the original trail write up. Please note that at waypoint 4, the BLM marquee sign for the Newberry Rodman Sub region has been removed (looked like vandalism). I've made the BLM aware of the issue, however the trail is open for travel.
