Great bathroom stop off highway 101 and a picnic spot. No grass now with the drought....but a great spot and stop.

A very well-maintained park with picnic areas, BBQs, playing fields, freshly paved parking areas and modern, clean restrooms in several areas. Wonderful for family outings or company picnics. Both times I've been here the trail has been closed, so if that's the main reason for coming, call ahead.

Great little walk anyone can handle up a beautiful little canyon to a gem of a wispy waterfall! California Bay trees abound. Not sure if it runs in this drought, but it has always been running when I have gone.

The park has huge picnic areas, 2 playgrounds on both ends of the park, and a well mark trail. Can't wait to go back after it rains and see the water fall running. I heard it is amazing.

The sign doesn't even tell you why, but we went there for a quick hike and it is all blocked off. The sign says it is dangerous, but no explanation at all. Shame on the parks department for not explaining what is happening, or fixing it.

Tried visiting on Saturday 8/8 but the trail was closed due to hazardous condition from a mudslide. There was a cute farmstead market that we visited so at least we didn't completely waste our time. The website (http://cosb.countyofsb.org/parks/parks02.aspx?id=8068) had a small red note stating it's currently closed...check it for more updates.

We had been here years ago and it is lovely when there isn't a drought. Sadly there was a storm this year and the main trail was closed due to a rock slide. There are still areas to hike, but you can't get to the main falls anymore which is a shame. They hope to re-open eventually once they have... More

We have tried twice (Dec. and July) to take the trail to the Falls but both times it has been closed. The Park is nice but not exciting and it is very remote -- spooky.

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
