Located just a few miles from San Juan Capistrano up the Ortega Highway you will find the beauty and charm of Southern California’s Santa Ana Coastal Mountain range located in the Cleveland National Forest. The climate is Mediterranean, with warm dry summers and cool winters. Spring brings a variety of flowers and greenery which are truly spectacular.
The Ortega Highway or Route 74 was established in 1934, the western portion of the highway located in Orange County follows San Juan Creek, (as do the ducks that fly the same path) and is named after the Spanish explorer Sgt. Jose Francisco Ortega who led the scouts of the 1769 Portola expedition, first non-natives to ever see the area.
