Welcome to Forest Falls
Leave scenic Highway 38 just 3 miles above Mountain Home Village and continue up Mill Creek Canyon. Gentle curves and majestic vistas introduce you to one of natures wonderlands, Valley of the Falls. Surrounded by National Forest with precipitous Yucaipa Ridge to the South and the San Gorgonio Wilderness to the North, year 'round waterfalls, peaks, crags, and an abundance of giant trees it is a wonder. Many refer to Forest Falls as "little Yosemite".
A residential resort community surrounded by National Forest Lands, Forest Falls has little room for growth, offers fresh air, clean water, safe living and an opportunity to experience 4 seasons while rediscovering the beauty and diversity of nature.
Our own Fallsvale Elementary School is operated by the Big Bear Unified School District and serves the communities of Angelus Oaks and Forest Falls with inter district transfers available for Mountain Home Village. Daily bus service is provided to Moore Junior High and Redlands East Valley High School, part of the Redlands Unified School District.
Law Enforcement is provided by the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office which includes a resident deputy that lives in our neighboring community of Angelus Oaks. The Sheriffs office also coordinates the local Valley of the Falls Search and Rescue Team.

Natural Disasters: From time to time our area is subject to natural disasters with the results often being as inconvenient as a short term road closure to less frequent but more intense issues that can result from flooding, heavy winter storm, earthquake, wildfire and whatever else mother nature can throw at us. Maps and reports about actual and predicted disaster events can be viewed at either Gillmore Real Estate office.
While taking natural disasters seriously, one of our caveats is "we would rather dodge boulders than bullets" and what sets us apart from city folks is that we epitomize the definition of "community." When things are normal everyone goes about their busy lives but, to quote Joseph P. Kennedy, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going" and nowhere is that more obvious than in Angelus Oaks, Forest Falls and Mountain Home Village where neighbors take care of neighbors and various responses to disaster situations have been planned and rehearsed over the years.
Emergency Info: While several government agencies have official sites it seems an up to date resource for events effecting the entire San Bernardino mountains is www.RimOfTheWorld.net. Other sites include:
Local News: Seasonally our local paper, The Bear Facts, is published for the tri-communities of Angelus Oaks, Forest Falls and Mountain Home Village. Daily news can be obtained from several newspapers that report on our area from time to time and include: Yucaipa News Mirror, Redlands Daily Facts, Press Enterprise, and for those who wish to be entertained with a lot of hype and sensationalism but little fact there is The Sun.
