Located at the southern end of the community of Newbury Park, this site reflects the heritage of both Native Americans and local ranching. The Satwiwa Native American Indian Culture Center is open on weekends from 9am to 5pm. Native American workshops and programs occur throughout the year. Rolling grasslands, oak woodlands, and chaparral can all be seen on the same hike here. The iconic and dramatic view of Boney Mountain can be seen if you choose to travel 8 miles to the ocean along the historic Sycamore Canyon Trail.
Nice area for a hike. The parking lot was full but we didn't encounter a crush of people on the Satwiwa Loop. Then we did a leg heading back to the cultural center on the Big Sycamore Canyon Trail and we found everyone. Didn't visit the cultural center but that looks like a good stop especially for families. Picnic tables outside the cultural center so you can include a picnic. You'll have to pack in your picnic from the parking lot but it isn't far.
