Nojoqui Falls

Nojoqui Falls in spring
Nojoqui Falls (a Chumash word pronounced nah-hoo-ee) are a 30 minute drive on the 101N from Goleta. Turn right onto Old Coast Highway about 6 miles after the Gaviota Rest Stop or 5.5 miles after the Gaviota Tunnel. Turn right again onto Alisal Rd after about a mile. Google directions.

The park has a playground and group picnic areas. Follow the road all the way through the park to find the trailhead. This is an easy trail with a slight incline and a roundtrip distance of about .6 miles. The shady path is cool on a warm day. The last 200 feet are closed as of spring 2017 due to the risk of landslides. Be safe. More information.

Trail Rating: Easy (except for the last 200 feet which appear slick)
Distance: .6 miles
Time: 15 minutes
Nearby attractions: Pick blueberries at Santa Barbara Blueberries, feed the animals and pick your own produce at The Farmstead, or enjoy the play area at Nojoqui Falls Park.
