General Description

Backbone Trail is an easy to moderate 2.5-mile hike. This trail begins at the Newton Canyon Parking Lot on Kanan-Dume Road. The winding trail leads to a view of the Upper Zuma Falls, which are especially grand after the winter rains. Watch out for poison oak along wet areas.

Dogs must be on leash at all times. For the consideration of others, please clean up after your pet. Trail closures may be in effect during and following significant rainfall to protect park resources. Trails will be re-opened when dry enough to sustain public use.

Directions from Agoura Hills, CA: Travel US 101 / Ventura Freeway to Kanan Road. Head south on Kanan Road to reach Zuma / Trancas Canyons. Parking is available at Newton Canyon.
