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.

I loved hiking with my friend today on this trail, not bored at all ,time just flew bye ! ,it's our third time in the last couple years we've done this trail ,we started at 8:30 in the morning so we wouldn't have the heat on us and it was perfect ,we were done at 11 with a cool breeze through the Canyon the whole hike. I don't know where the 15 miles comes from it's more like 8 1/2 miles from the parking lot where the bathrooms are in Newbury Park to the parking lot at the entrance of Sycamore Canyon.

Hiked on Tuesday 8/1/2017 at 5pm and ended around 630pm with a total of around 4 miles... it was hot and very little shade...
Very little traffic , i hiked alone and I saw only two people . Lots of lizards and quails! Lots of bushes and burned trees. It's a recovering area from a fire. The difficulty is about 3/10 with one area pretty steep. Its a boring trail but good for the area. The area near the waterfall has overground bushes that cover the trail. The waterfall at this time of the year is nonexistent. It's was disappointing actually. The best part was essentially the overview area of the hills. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it unless you want to get some exercise.

Pros: little to no traffic, exercise , parking
Cons: boring, no shade, no waterfall
Rating: 2/10
Notes: no dogs on waterfall trail, no bikes on waterfall trail, no hike alone, trails splits to other areas

Had a lot of fun hiking this trail. It was a total of 15.52 miles from the car and back. Very easy just sometimes it got a little boring with the same views (the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) but overall I would hike again if I was looking to burn a lot of calories with a more easier hike (we burned 2715 in calories)

Lovely hike! The waterfall is a little weak right now but you can still climb the rocks and get close to the pools. The brush on the way to the waterfall in the ravine is not well cleared though. Beautiful views of Boney Mountain and Newbury Park. Plenty of additional trails to extend the hike if desired.
