Rancho Santa Margarita Communities

Getting to know Rancho Santa Margarita

Rancho Santa Margarita is bordered by the city of Mission Viejo on the west, Coto De Caza and Las Flores on the south, Trabuco Canyon on the north, and the Cleveland National Forest on the east.

The majority of the neighborhoods in RSM are maintained by larger homeowners associations including SAMLARC, Dove Canyon, Rancho Cielo, Robinson Ranch, and Trabuco Highlands. Dove Canyon, Trabuco Highlands, Robinson Ranch and Rancho Cielo were all established before Rancho Santa Margarita was an incorporated community. East of Plano Trabuco Road is designated with a Trabuco Canyon (92679) zip code even though the area falls within the City of Rancho Santa Margarita boundary.
