How about the San Mateo Wilderness up near Lake Elsinore/Wildomar off of I-15? Here's a link to a trip report on the www.mtsanjacinto.info website. If the link doesn't come up go to that website, go to the 'Outdoors . . ' subforum, and go back a few pages until you find a thread with 'San Mateo Wilderness' in its title (about thre-four pages back).
I haven't been back there in a few years, but I remember it as being quite a nice winter hiking area; great ocean views, cool, and lost of big shady oak trees. Only limitation might be water availability due to the 4-year drought; check with the Trabuco Ranger District/Cleveland Natl Forest.
