Los Jilgueros Preserve is a 46-acre nature preserve located in Fallbrook. The Fallbrook region is Luiseño territory. The preserve was once an orchard and farmland before being purchased by the Fallbrook Land Conservancy. During your hike, you will most likely see some of the old farm equipment still laying around off trail.
The preserve has a variety of zones to explore such as wetlands, native gardens, a pond and forest groves. We explored in the springtime when everything was blooming. It was a very beautiful and tranquil hike, great for the entire family and pup!
Los Jilgueros translates to “finches” in Spanish. Bird-watching can be a great activity to do here thanks to the variety of plant life offered!
