In the hills behind the historic mission lies a sleeping Indian, resting across the land. The mountains of this region are distinctive in shape & have plenty native American history. The residential region has been known for it's fruit bearing trees, large boulder landscape, as well as natural beauty in oak meadows. Located in between Palomar Mountain, the Temecula wine region, plus the beautiful coastline of San Diego, the rural community of Fallbrook is a hidden gem for many.
