Scenic Trail (Zuma) is a 0.21 mi trail between Canyon View Trail and Zuma Canyon Trail within Zuma/Trancas Canyons. 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, or turn right (east) onto Rainsford Pl, then left (north) on Bonsall Dr to the Zuma Canyon Trailhead. The trails in can also be accessed from the Kanan Backbone Trailhead. From the 101, exit Kanan Rd. Head south 8 miles to trailhead.
