Rocky cascades, bedrock pools, rich geological formations, seasonal waterfalls This is a stunning adventure hike with swimming holes, rocky cascades, wonderful geologic formations and car-size boulders to negotiate around. This hike is at it loveliest after it rains, although also at its most challenging. The route follows the wooded flood plain near the coast, up through lower Zuma Canyon, bushwacking through the narrows, past the Edison fire road, eventually hitting a junction with Newton Canyon. The final half mile of the hike includes 3 seasonal waterfalls including the 40 ft Newton Falls and the lovely lower Zuma Falls (up a short side trail).
there's no waterfall here.
Trail is well marked. Everything is very green and beautiful right now. Parking lot has ample parking. Dog friendly, likely to see horses so be on the look out for them.
Awesome hike, it was a very clear sunny day = hot, had dog he did great although he did consume two water bottles himself. iphone registered 4.2 miles and 43 flights of stairs.
wild, raw, undeveloped. only recommended for serious hikers. i felt like a spider terminator
It was more rigorous than expected, but a great work out with views of the ocean and many wild flowers.
Beautiful and scenic, the initial uphill is steady and steep but well worth the climb. The trail is very rutted and required us to walk on the sides. Despite that, I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a pleasant 2 hour hike.
