William S. Hart was born in Newburgh, New York on December 6, 1864.  Hart started his acting career in his twenties.  At the age of 49, Hart came west to Hollywood to start his movie career.  During the next 11 years, he made more than 65 silent films, the last being "Tumbleweeds" in 1925.  Hart was one of the first Western film stars and was close friends with Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson.

In 1921, Hart purchased a ranch house and surrounding property.  He built a 22 room mansion which today houses Hart's collection of western art, Native American artifacts, and early Hollywood memorabilia.  Hart lived at the ranch nearly 20 years until his death in 1946.  In his will, Hart gave the Horseshoe Ranch to the County of Los Angeles.  It was to be set aside for the use and enjoyment of the public, at no charge.  Today, the Horseshoe Ranch consists of 265 acres. Both the ranch house and the Hart residence are open to the public.  An assortment of animals reside at Hart Park, including a small herd of bison which were a gift from the Walt Disney Studios in 1962.  Click on his picture on the LEFT for a brief Wikipedia Biography.

Nojoqui Falls is one of those roadsigns you see from the 101 freeway as you are zipping up or down the coast. Chances are, if you've driven by it, you've said, "How the heck do you pronounce that?" or something more colorful along similar lines. Not many people stop, and that can be a really good thing, becasue this wonderful place is hardly ever crowded. It is definitely a local secret.

A short walk takes you to a spectacular set of falls that drop nearly 100 feet over a sandstone wall. Calcium constantly builds and the falls grow outward and do not erode like normal waterfalls.  Maidenhair ferns line the travertine, and it looks and feels like elves could dart out at any moment. The falls are best viewed after rains, but the area is lovely at any time, and all ages will appreciate the walk.

Trailhead

Take the 101 north from Santa Barbara past Gaviota and turn right onto Old Coast Highway. There is a sign for Nojoqui County Park.  Turn onto Alisal Road (you can only go left) and then right into the county park. The park is nearly 2 miles from the freeway.

From Solvang, take Alisal Road and follow it to the left hand turn for the park. This drive is more scenic and very lovely.
