Get your history lesson, and take a hike, too! La Purisima is home to 25 miles of hiking trails over 2,000 acres, connecting to the back country. Most of the trails are sandy and lead through a mix of chaparral and oak and are home to a healthy population of wildlife. The Vista Del La Cruz Trail starts right behind the Visitor’s Center and leads up to the cross on the hill overlooking the Mission, about a half mile round trip. Dogs allowed. Gate entrance fee.

At first glance, Nojoqui Falls County Park near Lompoc looks like your average city park with sports fields, barbeque grills and group picnic areas. But tucked away toward the back of this park is a local secret – a 100-foot waterfall that tumbles down from high cliffs into a natural pool.
