Relax at Nojoqui Falls

Los Angeles Nojoqui Falls

Added by Nick Wagner

  • Head out on a very quick hike to enjoy this 80 foot waterfall
  • 0.65 mile round trip out-and-back hike with 175 foot elevation gain
  • Bring your lunch and snag your picnic table
  • Duration: < 1 hour unless you’re staying to BBQ

Unfortunately, the falls have been inaccessible for a while due to dangerous conditions from a mudslide. Contact the County of Santa Barbara Parks Division for more information.

The falls are a great daytime getaway. Granted it's a quick, short hike, so you won't get the same workout or sweat going from longer trails,, but you will get to take in this 80-foot waterfall and relax without too much hassle.

Hit the hike early and once you’re back, grab one of the BBQ pits and a picnic table and relax for the day. If you do want to make a day of it, hit up Solvang Deli just off the 101 exiting onto the 246 to grab sandwiches or something to cook up.

How to Get There

Waterfall

The falls are closed but they are still accessible if you climb past the small fence that's been put up. The falls are only average right now because of the drought but it's still a nice place to hang out. It can get cold though because it's nearly fully shaded the whole hike (which takes less than 10 minutes either way).
