Public use of Santa Margarita Trails has been SAVED!
After 4+ years of staying vigilant and going public we have managed to save our trails! The Santa Margarita River trail system is now in Escrow with the Wildlands Conservancy and a public easement for non-motorized use will be placed on the deed at time of sale!!!
The Santa Margarita River Valley trail system has been created and maintained for over 25 years by the Fallbrook Trails Council. Currently Fallbrook Public Utilities District (FPUD) water district owns the land and has allowed non-motorized public trail use including Equestrian use on this property. FPUD is in the process of selling this land, we would like the current public use maintained throughout this sale and any future sales. To this end, we the undersigned petitioners request that FPUD record a legal easement on the deed to provide for non-motorized public trail use including equestrians, throughout the river valley property. We also request that this is recorded as floating trail easement on the Deed immediately so there is no question or negotiation as to the trail use.
