Nojoqui Falls. Waterfall hiking trail. We went in July and the travel brochure said there would be a small amount of water. I believe the exact verbiage was "a trickle." There was zero water. This is a BEAUTIFUL park and the walking trails are pretty but without the water running in the stream it was not worth the uphill hike.... More

We took a nice hike up the hill only to find out that there are no falls. There is a mountain lion notice that may irk some visitors. It is probably about a 10-12 minute walk to the end. It appears as though the falls have been blocked due to heavy rock movement. There is a barrier to get near... More

Nice place to take a walk. Easy ares, wouldn't exactly call it a hike. Since water has been so scarce, not any available to make a waterfall. Still, the are is nice for a walk. Would still recommend.

This is a very nice park to visit, but there is no water when we visited. Of course, we knew that since there is a severe drought in California. The park can be hard to find right on 101. It's worthwhile to visit especially if you have little kids. The hike is about 10 mins and very easy so kids... More

Yeah with the drought that has plagued California for the last decade I do not think this should be call Nojoqui Falls Park. I believe Nojoqui creek is more fitting. It is a nice uphill little hike for which I believe is about 2 miles. There is plenty of trees for shade but do not be disappointed to make your... More

Although the waterfall is pretty dry due to the drought, it's an easy hike, beautiful location, and fun for the family. Just be careful with the kids because there is poison oak all over the trail! The park is huge, plenty of parking and picnic benches. We enjoyed our hike and had a little picnic there as well. I highly... More

I have gone to Nojoqui Falls since I was a child in 4-H.We decided since we were in the area to walk the trail again. The trail is well maintained until just before the falls and then there is a barrier that stated landslide, no entrance. Perhaps a sign at the beginning of the trail would have been more useful....

This is a great place to take your kids to let them play and have a picnic. Took my kids before their horse riding lesson to eat and run around. There's plenty of seating and tables for you to put your spread out on. The play ground is in good shape with fun things for the kids. If your feeling... More

Tucked away just outside of Solvang, this might just be the most beautiful park I've ever been to! Acres and acres of flat green grass surrounded by massive trees. Perfect for soccer, dog walking, picnics etc. Restrooms, a playground and a hike to a waterfall?? Shut your mouth! Quiet and tranquil, this park was EXCELLENT. Bathrooms and ample parking plus...

We loved this hike to the Falls and will do this each time we visit. It was sad to see that a rock fall prevents one from getting closer. The beauty of this place can't be denied. The water flows beautifully this time of year.Go and enjoy!
