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

Beautiful drive from Solvang to the park. Have always seen wild turkeys in the pasture next to the park. Lots of shade and the walk to the waterfall isn't bad. Recommend using the other facilities at the park instead of the one closest to the falls since it is used heavily. Playground for small children. BBQ pits, grass, shade..... couldn't... More

Two years ago, my husband and I "happened" upon Nojoqui Falls Park. The drive to this place is worth the travel from Solvang. We came in April and the falls were full and flowing. We just recently returned and unfortunately, because of our state drought....the falls have dried up. The hike isn't too bad, but you need good walking shoes... More

This is a beautiful park and, ordinarily, well worth the trip. Unfortunately, California is in a drought (2014) and the falls have dried up. Try it after California gets a good wet winter.

We hiked to the falls this past weekend. It was a nice little hike (20 minutes) to the falls. It's been dry there so there was a trickle of water falling but it was still a nice area.
