Trabuco Canyon

This tiny, unincorporated town is located in a beautiful canyon near the base of Saddleback Mountain. Trabuco Canyon is home to one of Southern California’s oldest planned communities, Coto de Caza, which was originally forseen as a hunting lodge. This prestigious, gated community still has a few preconstruction sites available for purchase. The vast majority of this community consists of tract homes and semi custom homes, which are still offer a high quality of value. Investors will find large homes sitting on sizeable amounts of land, which can still be purchased for less money than a similar home closer to the California coast. Trabuco Canyon also offers commercial endeavors such as a general store, guest lodges, and boutique hotels.

Trabuco Canyon is known for its three scenic parks. Locals have the luxury of hiking on some of the most beautiful trails that Southern California has to offer. Arroyo Trabuco is a perfect place to snap family pictures, camp, and hike through picturesque scenery. Whiting Ranch and Wilderness Park offers 1500 acres of forestry, streams, trails, and canyons and is also a local favorite for a weekend hike or horseback rides. O’Neill Regional Park is a great place for a barbeque and a camp fire. Nestled around the Santa Ana Mountains, O’Neill offers some of Southern California’s finest equestrian trails.

Bikers ride from all over the country to eat at one of Southern California’s most celebrated restaurants, Cook’s Corner. This 60 year old establishment is as well known for its rustic setting as it is for its local country music and pool tables. Locals also enjoy extra thick sirloins and porterhouse steaks grilled on mesquite barbeque grills at the great food at Trabuco Oaks Steakhouse.
