The rest of the City of Rancho Santa Margarita lies along the foothills of the Saddleback Mountains, which affords the entire area a lovely background view. Equestrians find Dove Canyon area to be a beautiful spot, as a horse trail winds it way to the far end of Sycamore Canyon from the waterfalls which are located just outside of the community proper.  From this point it is easy for riders, hikers, mountain bikers, and others to trek to Dove Canyon's neighboring community, Coto de Caza.

The entire City of Rancho Santa Margarita is easily accessed via the Interstate 5 Freeway, the 241 Toll Road, or Santiago Canyon Road. This prime location makes real estate in Dove Canyon a great place for residents who wish to commute to places of business in larger cities, including Los Angeles and others throughout Orange County.

In addition to the security of a guard-gated community, Dove Canyon real estate benefits from the already low crime rate in Rancho Santa Margarita.  The city also provides outstanding schools and an additional abundance of amenities extending beyond the borders of Dove Canyon itself.  Active residents can take the opportunity to hike through the O'Neil Regional Park, climb the vistas of Saddleback Mountain, or even enjoy a swim in the lagoon at the Rancho Santa Margarita beach club.

Dove Canyon enjoys access to the city's multiple recreational facilities, which are managed by the Rancho Santa Margarita Landscape and Recreation Corporation (or SAMLARC). This association maintains the city's streetscapes, medians, parks, and trails.

Along with the majority of the Southern California coast, Dove Canyon enjoys the beauty of a Mediterranean climate.  This climate type is named after its strong similarity to the weather in the countries that border the Mediterranean Sea.  In the Orange County area, the summers consistently range from warm to hot, while the winters are cool.  Most of the rain that falls in Rancho Santa Margarita will come down during the winter months, and snow is a foreign concept to natives.
