Ramona Grassland Preserve is now open to the public. The preserve adds to the uniqueness of Ramona where natural beauty is abundant with 360-degree vistas. This is a dream come true for land conservationists, hikers, equestrians and bikers. The 3,500-acre preserve is home for the endangered Stephens’ kangaroo rat, fairy shrimp, arroyo toad and all kinds of birds including hawks, eagles and falcons. There is a trail that runs through part of the preserve which is located off Highland Valley Road, east of Archie Moore Road near Mount Woodson. The preserve is open daily from 8 am to 7 pm. Check it out when you come to Ramona for wine tasting!
