Easy walk for small waterfall

This is a nice but not too exciting waterfall. Considering that there are very few waterfalls at all in Southern California, we take what we can get. It is located in a nice park... read more

With all the rain California received earlier in the year we were hoping to visit the park and falls during our weekend trip to the area, however, as we made our way to the park, there was a sign indicated that the roads were closed due to a washout. This was at the end of March, so I am not... 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 a few miles thru a heavily wooded area. Expect to see deer early or late... More

This is a nice but not too exciting waterfall. Considering that there are very few waterfalls at all in Southern California, we take what we can get. It is located in a nice park near Buellton and Solvang. While there are entrances from both towns, it appeared that the Solvang side was closed for repairs, so for now (April 2017)... More

Nojoqui Falls is located up a winding trail at the east end of the park. The falls are seasonal. When the creek along the trail is running so are the falls. The falls are quiet impressive after recent rain. The park is a wonderful family place with plenty of room from running around and exploring, Giant ancient oaks add to... More

The park is very nice, there is a big area with picnic tables and places for BBQ at the beginning. You can't to get actually near the waterfall because of some construction work there, but you can see it close enough. Really lovely hiking trail

I really love this park and don't drive there often enough from my home in Santa Barbara. I hadn't been to this park for over 2 years and was shocked that landslides covered two parts of the hiking trail. Signs prohibit walking the trail but are easily bypassed - there, I'm sure for liability protection. The falls were a beautiful... More

Want to get away from the noise of the city? Take this 5 minute walk after parking into the hills to see the waterfall. The walk there is nature at it's finest. Best of all this is a FREE adventure.

Lovely park, and the drive from Solvang is also great. Unfortunately, even with a lot of rain recently, there was zero water in the falls. Still, the hike up to the falls was beautiful.

Only about 8 miles south of the city of Solvang is a nice park, named Nojoqui Falls Park. NO water at the falls area, yet a lovely park to spend some time.

Went there for a bit of a hike with my parents. It's not a piece of cake walk. Quite steep to get to the falls but very pretty ! We went in September and it was hot !
