The trail begins as a turn-off from Zuma Canyon Trail and heads east through dense chaparral ground covering towards the base of the foothills. The trail then winds upward along the ridge of the foothills, offering continuous views of the Pacific Ocean and Malibu. At the top there are sweeping panoramic views of the Pacific, and on a clear day, Catalina Island. There is also a connection to the Kanan-Edison Road trail for those who wish to continue. You can head south and return to Zuma Canyon Trail via Ocean View Trail, or head north for long loops greater than 10 miles.

This segment is accessible from the west using the Zuma Canyon Trail out of the Zuma Canyon Trailhead at the end of Bonsall Drive, or from the east using the Kanan-Edison Road off Kanan Dume Road.
