You can get a partial view of the falls, but that's it. The park should put some signage down in the parking area alerting everyone to the closure before they make the hike. . Not 50 yards from the Falls.....bummed

I took Alisal Road to get here, passed two ranches many trees and beautiful forest. Took me and my family 10 minutes to get to the falls and we were not dissapointed.

nice place to hike, however there was no water in the falls. Due to the drought in CA there was only a trickle

A child friendly hike up to the waterfall under the canopy of the tree lined path. Plenty of space to park and to picnic nearby and only 10 minutes drive from Solvang. Facilities on site.

First of all, it's a nice little short hike for young children...and that's about all you can look forward to. The falls are a damp trickle (this was in June, in fairness), but even if it had been a full cascade, we wouldn't have seen...More

Nojoqui Falls is a great stop for the whole family. It is a leisurely 15 minute walk up to the falls under a well shaded Sycamore canopy. There have been recent rock slides which have filled in the base of the falls. A good rain...More

Was a great quick hike! The waterfall area was *technically* blocked off because of dangerous falling rocks. There wasn’t a lot of water flowing this time of year but seems great for all ages and a great place to stop off if you’re on the...More

A short 6 mile drive from downtown Solvang, this charming park is a lovely escape to nature’s beauty. Picnic tables are abundant, and so are grills, so pack a cooler and enjoy this outdoors treasure. Hike to the falls is fairly easy and don’t forget...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
