"The dark west flank of Monserate Mountain rises abruptly alongside I15, its chaparral-coated surface relatively uncut by roads and graded residential lots. The Fallbrook Land Conservancy has established its largest preserve here, the 340-acre Monserate Mountain Preserve. The hike to the 1567-foot high point on the mountain could be considered a chore, but optimistically (it’s easy to be optimistic hiking on a clear, cool day) the experience combines some heart-pounding exercise with a spacious and panoramic view at the top."
