Nojoqui Falls Photos and Video
By Robert Bernstein
On our way back from the wildflowers on Figueroa Mountain on Monday we stopped by Solvang for lunch. We then continued on Alisal Road from Solvang to Nojoqui Falls Park.
Here are all of my photos!
The drive on Alisal Road is quite beautiful, with lichen-covered trees arched across the road. It is about 6.5 miles on Alisal road which takes about fifteen minutes
There were quite a few people out on this weekday afternoon
A sign explains it is just a ten minute walk to the falls. There are also warning signs to watch for falling rocks. This kind of signage is getting ever more common. I don't think there really is much risk on this trail.
The trail is quite lush and beautiful
It is a steady climb to the falls with some stairs along the way
There are a couple of stream crossings with bridges
Do be careful to stay on the trail as there is also some lush poison oak!
Sure enough, in just about ten minutes of walking we were at the Nojoqui Falls!
This man was photographing his wife and they kindly took photos of me as well
Here is my video of the falls. No, it is not Niagara Falls. But it is the most water I have seen at Nojoqui Falls!
More beautiful scenery on the walk back, including some hole-y trees!
