Trancas Edison Road / Chumash Indian Trail
I have hiked Zuma Ridge Fire Road for quite some time now, mostly as an exercise trail. There are a few trails that break off the road and I hiked two of them on this day. Edison (I assume) ran a bulldozer down Trancas Edison Road a few months back. Before that it was so overgrown that I was never able to explore it. Chumash Indian Trail is another I had walked past for years and never checked out until now.
Just for fun I took a couple of short side trails off of Zuma Ridge Fire Road.
Giant Robot Approaching
Trancas Edison Road Runs downhill for about a mile and half.
Although cleared just a few months back, grass and weeds are beginning to cover Trancas Edison Road.
I hiked back up to Zuma Ridge Fire Road and began to climb again.
Chumash Indian Trail is marked as “unmaintained” on my map. This is a rugged and overgrown trail with lots of sharp and nasty plants and steep hills with bad footing. It felt like I was the first person to hike the trail in years.
I was rewarded with big (slightly haze) views, maybe the best of the hike.
