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.

Loved it

Will try again but didn't get past the first bend without a coyote standing in the middle of the trail staring at my 12 lb terrier mix like it was a snack.

It's a road...so pretty boring aside from the cool factor of hiking from Newbury Park to the beach.

Amazing! The views were awesome and it's beautiful. Another good part is its clean and there isn't trash everywhere. Also IT IS DOG FRIENDLY!!! another thing is for this app its directions will take you straight to the Wendy trail and around a housing area but go to the main entrance instead because you can't park in the housing area.

Nice simple trail that goes through lots of open land and some partially covered hillsides. Views are OK.

Wanted to add this.

We saw tons of poison oak. Keep your eyes open and avoid it. I'm very allergic to it and was able to keep it away.

We hiked here yesterday. The trails are well marked and there are lots of options. There is little to no shade so bring your sunscreen. Also there didn't seem to be any water on the trails due to the drought, so make sure you bring your own.

We saw lots of other hikers, horses, and mountain bikers.

We'll be going back soon to hike one of the other trails there.

Good in the summer, best in the spring or fall.

It's basically in my backyard, and it's a nice hike any time of year. The trail networks until literally dozens of other trails for mountain biking, running or just checking out the wildlife. It can be a little "snakey" the summer months, so watch the kids
