The Sweetwater Trail is a 6.76 mile trail in the San Rafael Wilderness in Santa Barbara County. The trail connects the Sierra Madre Road to the Sisquoc Trail (30W12). Sweetwater Canyon was so named because the creek water does not contain alkali like some of the other creeks in the area. The trail is an old Native American trail used by the Chumash to travel from the Cuyama Valley, over the Sierra Madre Mountains, down the Sisquoc River and on to the Manzana Creek area. It was later used by the Cuyama Valley residents to come fishing on the Sisquoc and by the Forest Rangers on patrol. Please share any current conditions for this trail.
