Foothill Ranch was annexed into the City of Lake Forest in 2000. The local community, El Toro, sprang up from the influx of settlers in 1863. Many pioneers who lived around El Toro, including in the foothills, were the first settlers in the region. El Toro quickly became the epicenter of the Saddleback Valley until the end of the 20th century when businesses moved away and it started to decline.

City planners and property owners worked diligently to rebuild the community, regulating in the creation of the Arbor at Lake Forest commercial district. The city was officially incorporated as Lake Forest in 1991, just a few years before taking on the Foothill Ranch community. The expansion into Foothill Ranch brought new commercial centers and homes into Lake Forest's boundaries. Today, it is ranked as one of the safest cities in the entire country.
