Runner Notes

Runners should expect to spend a majority of time on this trail scrambling over mid-large sized boulders.

Description

This route begins at the end of the Zuma Canyon Trail and heads north through Zuma Canyon as it follows Zuma Creek. Since this route is not a maintained trail, running this portion of the canyon can be slow and strenuous at times. Throughout the whole trail, you'll be running up and over a variety of boulders, some of which are the size of a truck. After running for 1.7 miles, likely at the slow pace of 1 mph, you'll finally reach the Zuma-Edison Fire Road. At this point the Zuma Canyon Route comes to an end, and you can either return along the same route or link up with the Zuma-Edison Fire Road to extend your run.
