Santa Margarita River Trails Map


The Santa Margarita River Trail Map shows a 5.8 mile loop trail located near Fallbrook, California that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is used for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. It is accessible year-round.

The trail begins at Sandia Creek Road, off De Luz road. The trail follows the river through a variety of scenery: shady woodlands, stunning boulders, dusty and dry chaparral, and burned areas near the 500 foot trail that are now recovering from the 2002 wildfires with native plants and wildflowers.
