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

We hiked to the falls one early summer morning. It was a weekday, so we were all alone. When you live in Los Angeles, just getting away from all the people is a plus. This isn't a giant waterfall, but just a hidden gem.

Pick up a sandwich and some great salad, wine and cheese or, yes, stop at the bakery. Drive out of town on tree lines country roads dripping with Spanish Moss. Watch for deer along the way especially around the golf course. Pull into to the pare (free). Park to the back and take the short trail to the falls. Yes... More

We hiked in about ten minutes on a beautifully maintained path, and the falls are all but dry. Only a little water still trickles down. Having said that, they are still beautiful and worth the sidetrip, and covered in ferns. It was a lovely little diversion on a driving day!

If you are interested in the waterfall, you'll have to wait for a rain...storm. Currently, water is dripping down the fall, the area is dry. Also, the pond it drips into is quite small, I would think it was dangerous if flowing hard. However, there were two locals who briefed us. Due to the drought locals come with rain jackets... More

Serene place, nice drive out there, on Alison road from Solvang. Saw deer, but no waterfall. People with limited walking ability will have trouble(steps). A good place for lunch.

Nojoqui falls is easy to find if you are staying in Solvang; just travel south on Alisal Road. The hike to the falls is easy and very pleasant. We saw wild turkey and enjoyed hearing the chirping and singing of many birds including woodpeckers. The falls are dry but the site is very beautiful. The restrooms are clean and there... More
