Ridge - Canyon Access Trail is one of many trails within Zuma/Trans Canyons and provides connectivity between Zuma Ridge, Zuma Loop, and Zuma Canyon Trails. Zuma/Trancas Canyons comprise a large area of continuous native
habitat. “Zuma” is the Chumash word for abundance, which is fitting given the amount of plant and animal life in the area. Trails dive into remote canyon bottoms and travel along ridgelines with broad horizons. The Backbone Trail System ties in with Zuma Ridge Motorway. Cyclists are not allowed on any trails in lower Zuma Canyon. Equestrians are allowed on all trails, except Ramirez Accessible Trail.
From PCH, turn inland at Busch Dr, across from Zuma Beach. Travel 1.3 mi. to the Zuma Ridge Trailhead.
