A well maintained park with all amenities and a short climb will take you to a great, scenic waterfall (if there's been enough rain). One of the best features about the place is the road leading there. It's tree lined and you're almost sure to...More

You can enter the park from one of two directions....the first is off the 101 freeway a few miles south of the Solvang/Buellton exit. Or my favorite way is at the east end of Solvang on S Alisal Ranch Road. From this direction you drive...More

As of today 1/24/16, the trail is closed due to a mudslide. I wouldn't count on them opening it by next weekend, but check with the Park Admin later in the week. (805) 568-2461
