Trail is over grown and full of rattle snakes. I’m sure it’s nice in the spring time but in July/August don’t even bother.

Only did part of loop due to high heat. Was enjoyable as easy trails go.

This place is great for mountain biking or horseback riding. For hiking which is what I do I found this place to be quite boring. Except for the wild flowers there is nothing interesting about this hike. As far as hiking is concerned I give this place 2 out of 5 stars.

Many dog friendly options. Some trails had little incline. Very nice and quiet easy hike.

Took some friends out to see the wildflowers. They weren't disappointed. Didn't see any Shooting Stars but there were a lot of Catalina Mariposa Lilies that I hadn't seen on previous trips..

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.

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.

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.

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.
