Highlight: Newberry Springs Fall
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.
