Lake Forest is a young city situated in the Saddleback Valley adjacent to the 1,500 acre Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park and beautiful Saddleback Mountains descriptively named for their appearance.

Remnants and relics of its historic past are visible in nearby Rancho Las Lomas (shown in photo above) which in privately owned and used for weddings, corporate events and tours. Another treasure is Cook's Corner, a favorite hang out for touring groups that arrive decked out in their finest leather outfits and expensive Harley motorcycles. While the new urban cowboys saddle up their bikes for trips to a bar once serving as military barracks during World War II, earlier generations rode horses and farmed the fertile Saddleback Valley.

There are free summer concerts in the park, theaters, community playhouse productions as well as special events at Heritage Hill, Historical Park.
