Santa Margarita River Trail Hike - Advanced Beginner / Intermediate

The Santa Margarita River Trail is a beautiful 5.2-mile (round trip) moderate hike along the river’s banks through sprawling oak trees and vines. With 507 feet of elevation gain, the trail offers a few opportunities to get the heart pumping, though the majority of the hike is on semi-flat ground. The trail consists of mostly packed dirt with some small sections of soft sand and rocky terrane. There is one decent hill which combines the East and West sections of the trial together and two water crossings in each direction which are easily traversable without getting wet. In addition, there are also two small sections of the trail which require you navigate over rocks (see images below) but are considered easy/moderate to navigate through. This is a heavily trafficked out and back trail and dogs are welcome but must be kept on leash. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring water if you need it, there are no filling stations onsite. There are no bathrooms at the parking area, however porta-potties are located at the halfway point. If you bring a dog, please be prepared to pickup after them. There are limited trash cans on the trail so all trash will need to be hiked out. We had an issue with the map last time as it sent some people into town. I highly suggest you use the GPS coordinates below. If you are being sent into downtown Fallbrook you are heading the wrong way. You should be on Willow Glen Road. ** WE HIT THE TRAIL AT 7:00 AM SO PLEASE COME A COUPLE MINUTES EARLY** How to find us Heading to town from the 15 fwy, take East Mission Rd. West to Willow Glen Rd., make a right. Stay on Willow Glen for approximately 2.1 miles until you hit a large dirt parking lot on your right hand side. If you hit a dirt road, you just passed us.
