Maintaining and enhancing the Santa Margarita River Trails for over 25 years

  The Fallbrook Trails Council was formed early in 1999 to address the issue of needed trails for walking and horseback riding in Fallbrook.  In this  short period of time, our dedicated members have  achieved many notable accomplishments.

 We have produced a high-quality pocket trail guide, illustrated by our talented local artists, showing local flora, fauna and trails.  We have worked with the Fallbrook Planning Group to create a map of paths and trails which has been included in the Fallbrook Community Trails Master Plan for San Diego County.  This will preserve and promote multi-use, low-impact trails and paths as resources for community health, personal fitness, and natural beauty.  

We work with the The Wildlands Conservancy by contributing time and donations to the maintenance of existing trails in the 1384-acre Santa Margarita River watershed. 

We have docents available to conduct tours through the Santa Margarita River basin.  The docents are trained to recognize local flora, fauna, provide historical information, and discuss current research projects through the auspices of SDSU’s 4400-acre Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve.   

We continue to work with local developers, neighboring trails committees and Fallbrook property owners, all of whom are interested in learning more about adding new trails and connecting existing Fallbrook trails to the larger networks of San Diego and California trails.
