Trail of the Month: Santa Margarita River Trail

By Claire Trageser

Great For
Running, Hiking

Difficulty Level

5.75 miles for the loop


Start at the intersection of Sandia Creek and Rock Mountain drives in Fallbrook. Follow the sandy path along the river, then cross over and loop back along the other side.

Why We Love It:

This wooded path takes you through green grass and along a picturesque river. Stop and dip your feet in the river if you get too hot.

Where to Refuel Afterward:

Get your breakfast fix at the classic diner Main Street Cafe (507 South Main Avenue) or try Fallbrook Coffee Company (622 South Mission Road) for pastries and sandwiches.
