Trabuco Canyon is a small unincorporated community located in the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains in eastern Orange County, California, north of Rancho Santa Margarita. It lies partly within the Cleveland National Forest.

Plano Trabuco Road leads from the top of the Canyon, south, to the city of Rancho Santa Margarita.

Fourth of July features an old-fashioned parade of locals riding horses and pulling home-made floats to the cheers of observers - who are small in number but large in enthusiasm.

A landmark is the Trabuco Oaks Steak House, known for its good food; it was a favorite restaurant of President Richard Nixon. There is also a popular Mexican restaurant, Rose Canyon Cantina on Rose Canyon Road.

A monastery of the Vedanta Society is also in the canyon, as well as the Trabuco Canyon Community Church TCCC, see link below.

History

Trabuco is Spanish for blunderbuss, an old type of rifle. A local story is in 1769 a blunderbuss was lost in the Canyon by a soldier serving with the Portola expedition.

Trabuco Canyon was the site of attempts to mine tin in the early 1900s. Remains of this activity are tunnels into the sides of the canyon, the stone foundation of an ore-processing mill, and some dams along the creek. Unfortunately, the whole tin-mining episode appears to have been a swindle.

On October 21, 2007, a large wildfire started in Silverado Canyon and spread to Trabuco Canyon. The Canyon was evacuated by the Fire Department. [citeweb | url=http://www.ocfa.org/pages/ocfa.asp?filename=canyonfire.asp | title=OCFA] .
