Newcomb Pass Picnic Area is not officially recognized by the Forest Service. This site is mostly used as a rest stop on the Gabrielino Trail, but the mysterious two tables make a nice destination spot. There is a short spur of the Rincon-Red Box Road that leads you to Newcomb Saddle with views of the High Country, including Mt. Waterman and Twin Peaks. Guests at Sturtevant’s Camp might want to consider a hike to the pass for lunch.
This is one end of the Rim Trail, a ridge route that leads to Mount Wilson.
