I don't know about zsh but here's a sh/bash function:

    mycd() {
            local dir=$1
            while ! cd -- "$dir"; do
                    dir=$(dirname -- "$dir")

This is exactly what I wanted. Thanks. It works in zsh too.


The find command probably can handle this maybe in a shorter form. I don't know as much syntax of that command as I'd like otherwise this could probably written in a single line of code.
