A neat little spot that can be reached by a 10 minute hike. Just outside of Solvang proper and up the road from Santa Barbara. Worthwhile.

Nice and short 10 minute walk to the falls or should I say trickle of the falls. Most of the area is dried up but there was some water falling. Park area looked nice but we were just hear to see the falls.

This month is not the best time to visit Nojoqui Falls or should I say summer time is not the best time. The park is a nice place for families though to bond together. A lot of good activities you can do. The Nojoqui Falls...More

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

This was a decent place to stop for a short walk. It was warm out but the trail is shaded so it wasn't bad. It wasn't crowded at all. Unfortunately, there is only a trickle of water at this time of year at the falls...More

Tucked away in a back road who'd have ever imagine that a tall, mossy waterfall beckons. There's not much more than a strong trickle this time of year but the path getting there was just lovely. There's enough water at the base of the waterfall...More

This park on ample grounds is bursting with wildlife. We saw a quail?? family foraging up close, plenty of deer and hawks over head. The trail to the falls is shorter than expected, only 15-20 minute easy walk from the trail head. In late June...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
