“No waterfall!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Serene place, nice drive out there, on Alison road from Solvang. Saw deer, but no waterfall. People with limited walking ability will have trouble(steps). A good place for lunch.

“No Mountain Lions”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Nojoqui falls is easy to find if you are staying in Solvang; just travel south on Alisal Road. The hike to the falls is easy and very pleasant. We saw wild turkey and enjoyed hearing the chirping and singing of many birds including woodpeckers. The falls are dry but the site is very beautiful. The restrooms are clean and there are lots of picnic tables to enjoy a picnic lunch.

“Great place to take family”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Beautiful drive from Solvang to the park. Have always seen wild turkeys in the pasture next to the park. Lots of shade and the walk to the waterfall isn't bad. Recommend using the other facilities at the park instead of the one closest to the falls since it is used heavily. Playground for small children. BBQ pits, grass, shade..... couldn't ask for more....

“Nojoqui Surprise”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Two years ago, my husband and I "happened" upon Nojoqui Falls Park. The drive to this place is worth the travel from Solvang. We came in April and the falls were full and flowing. We just recently returned and unfortunately, because of our state drought....the falls have dried up.
The hike isn't too bad, but you need good walking shoes and have a sureness to your step at times. (the road can be rocky and very uneven).
There are so many beautiful spots to take photos, and a lovely romantic hike (about 20 minutes).

“Gone dry 2014”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This is a beautiful park and, ordinarily, well worth the trip. Unfortunately, California is in a drought (2014) and the falls have dried up.
Try it after California gets a good wet winter.
