Nojoqui Falls is a great stop for the whole family. It is a leisurely 15 minute walk up to the falls under a well shaded Sycamore canopy. There have been recent rock slides which have filled in the base of the falls. A good rain...More

Camp host was rude. She came out of nowhere and yelled at us to get out of her way. We were there with our kids and she was using foul language. Just a selfish individual. Very unprofessional.

Was a great quick hike! The waterfall area was *technically* blocked off because of dangerous falling rocks. There wasn’t a lot of water flowing this time of year but seems great for all ages and a great place to stop off if you’re on the...More

A short 6 mile drive from downtown Solvang, this charming park is a lovely escape to nature’s beauty. Picnic tables are abundant, and so are grills, so pack a cooler and enjoy this outdoors treasure. Hike to the falls is fairly easy and don’t forget...More

In July, the water is thin ribbon and that allows tourists to walk past the blockaded path right down to the pool and stick your hands under the falling water. The forested glen is a delight even though the paths are dusty. CAUTION: Winter runoffs...More

I've been coming here with my dad for years. Sometimes there is more water, other times a trickle. It's still always beautiful and serene. It has been many years since I last visited. It looks as though part of the hill had washed down to...More

This is a short drive from Solvang, and it has a lot to view on the way. There are cows and horses along the countryside. For a city girl, I love coming to areas like this: rolling hills, curvy roads, green everywhere! It's a peaceful...More

We went there after a rain and there was some water trickling down the waterfall. It's kind of impressive to look at it from the bottom with all the ferns hanging down. We could do that because there was not much water. The "hike" itself...More

The walk in is a gradual incline, the water falls were at a trickle. Great place to spend some quiet time

You really can't access it directly, but there are signs not to use as drinking water. I think it's too rocky, and the park considers it a safety risk.

As of today 1/24/16, the trail is closed due to a mudslide. I wouldn't count on them opening it by next weekend, but check with the Park Admin later in the week. (805) 568-2461
