Fallbrook Trails Council


The Fallbrook Trails Council has maintained and repaired the Santa Margarita River Trails for more than 25 years, and has now merged with the Live Oak Park Coalition. The approximately 1,400 acres with 14 miles of trails are actually privately owned by the Fallbrook Public Utility District, but the scenic horseback and hiking paths are available for anyone to use.

The Santa Margarita River is one of the most beautiful riparian areas and the last continuously flowing river in southern California. The trails winds past deep pools and rushing waters over large boulders. Great for bird watchers and bikers, hikers and equestrians. Share the trail and enjoy this gorgeous wild place.
