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.

Great warm day for a hike. Those who usually hike on nearly level ground will find a couple of these hills to be challenging but give them a try because the trail on the other side is nice and isolated for suburbia sprawl.

NOT DOG-FRIENDLY! So apparently, the beginning of the trail is but once the parks change jurisdiction into Sycamore Canyon, dogs are no longer invited.

Get out to Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa as the wildflowers are really coming out. Nice patches of Califormia Poppy with a few Parrys Phacelia mixed in. A good place to see the poppies is along the Old Boney Trail and Hidden Valley Trail parallel to the Satwiwa Loop Trail.

Very Nice Hike. Waterfall is flowing strong & very pretty.
If you stick to the outlined trail it is not an Easy hike. It should be rated Moderate cause there are more uphill terrain. Most of our group enjoyed it but a few took the flat trail next to this one. On the hills some awesome views of the whole area. Enjoy!

Great trail for the family, but you CANNOT bring your dog all the way in! if you want to go to the waterfall, leave the dog home. Because this trail starts in a National Park, your dog is welcome but the waterfall is in a State Wildlife Reserve and dogs are not allowed. The officers told us it was a $250 fine +court costs.

Parking can be very stressed and on this particular day people weren't clearing out between 10 - 11. It was a nice cool day after the previous weekend had rain. Still a great hike. Everything is green and wildflowers are out especially in the old burn areas. It's early for wildflowers so they could get even better.

Pretty views. Lots of water. Very muddy right now from all the rain. Lots of hills and steep cliffs from small landslides so not easy for kids under 5. Not stroller friendly but a good walk.

lovely after the rain!

Great trail and easy-to-navigate. Plenty of great sceneries and wildlife to look at.
