Nice easy walk up to the falls. Unfortunately just a small amount of water running. it must be amazing after lots of rain. Nice picnic sites with large shade trees.

Beautiful location -breathtaking views of local mountains. My son played in a lacrosse tournament on the polo fields. Couldn't ask for a more beautiful location in the heart of the country. It was very green and lush.

We try to hike this trail about twice a year for the last 2 years and the trail has always been closed. The general area is pretty and we did see a group of wild turkeys in the cow pasture near by.

We happened upon Nojoqui Falls via research on the web. The falls did not have a major 'flow' but the natural beauty was amazing. A relaxing drive to the falls along with a leisurely walk up to the falls was so serene. A must if your in the area.

The park was virtually empty even though it was a beautiful sunny day in December. The trail to the waterfall was closed due to a trail hazard, so we weren't able to hike there. Warning signs about cougars were prominently displayed. Huge park, lots of picnic tables. I don't know if camping is allowed there - I think it may... More

If it has been raining, hike to the falls and enjoy. If it has been dry (and it has been dry a lot over the last few years) enjoy the drive, the countryside and the grounds of the park. Deer and wild turkey saunter through the park regularly. The park is often uncrowded and a very pleasant to stop and... More

Drove there to find closed signs and lots of orange tape over the hiking entrances. Trail washout ?? Playground for kids open, but not what we came to experience.

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.
