Description: Sandia Creek drive and DeLuz road are very scenic yet challenging drive. These two highways cut through the rolling hills of Fallbrook and Temecula and are regularly covered by a canopy of trees that outline the road. The constant changes in elevation makes this drive an extremely invigorating drive.

Access: Fallbrook, De Luz Road.

Difficulty:
While an incredibly scenic route, don’t let the sights take your attention away from this challenging road. While not as difficult as Engineer’s Road or Palomar Mountain, these roads include a variety of tight turns and sweepers and should not be underestimated. It a wonderful route for those headed to Temecula and don’t mind the detour.

Road Conditions: 
The roads are well maintained and smooth, keep an eye out for the water crossings as they can cause the road to get slick.

Traffic:
It is a fairly main thoroughfare and includes a number of private homes, watch out for cars on the blind turns.

Scenery:
This stretch of road feels almost like a painting as you pass underneath the old growth trees, and beautiful country homes – absolutely stunning in the fall.

Length: 31.3 miles

Attractions: Main Street Cafe in Fallbrook, CPR Classic in Fallbrook, Historic Old Town in Temecula.
