Great place to visit. Beautiful scenery. Short walk to Nojoqui Falls. Easy walk for kids. Great place to spend the day - feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, yet you're so close to the town of Solvang.

We first discovered this park almost 49 years ago on our honeymoon. Since then we have shared the hike to the waterfall, sometimes the lack of, with our three sons and now seven grandchildren. Even the little ones can enjoy this shaded hike. Early in the morning, we have seen deer feeding on the hillside. The drive from Solvang or... More

Unfortunately with the drought the falls are almost nonexistent, but it is still a lovely park to walk around and have a picnic.

This is a nice beautiful easy hike, the Grandkids love coming here and at the end is a wonderful waterfall mostly shady & is not a diffacult jont even for an elderly person in good shape. You should make this a point of interest

We went early for a walk through this County park. The trail to the waterfall is closed due to a mud slide. The barrier is a plastic tape, and it could be crossed, although we aren't suggesting breaking the rules. But the trail is short and worth a little walk. There is lots of open space for kids to run... More

This is a really large park with a small waterfall that is dry right now. You have to take a hike to get to the falls but when there is water it's a pleasant walk. This is a nice place to have a picnic or a BBQ. There is a small play ground for the children and lots of room... More

Ok, if the only trail at a park is closed to the public, PLEASE note it on the major sign so people don't waste their time driving to the remote location expecting to take a hike to a waterfall that has been blockaded to humans.

This is a charming little park a few miles from Solvang. It has an easy and manageable hike to a waterfall (when there is one), but it's ideal and easy for families and even older people like me! Solvang can be filled with tourists and activity at times so if you just want a quiet day or 1/2 day, this... More

We went here because we had heard it was pretty, the walk was kind of hard to do with a stroller and little kids since some parts aren't secured ands at the end there was no water! Don't go if it hasn't rained a lot!

I got burned when I didn't check the parks website showing that the trail to the falls was closed because of mudslides. People were still crossing the markers set up that closed the trail. My wife and I knew that we would be the only people to get caught if we did it. We respected the boundary and didn't cross.... More
