Moderately hilly open plains hike spot. Best in spring and fall. Trails are wide and we'll maintained however could be more clearly marked for direction.

Santa Rosa Plateau has some of the best hikes anywhere in the Temecula Valley. Enjoy all the different trails, the Adobes, or heading further back. You can go 2 miles to 12 miles, whatever you choose. Best to hike during the week.

Miles of well kept hiking trails that are suited for any level of fitness. Dedicated bike and horse trails if that is your fancy. Do not miss the majestic view from monument hill!
