Grear Ranch is a 200-acre privately owned open space area in Menifee, California, covered in a network of hiking and mountain biking trails.
Many of the trails have been groomed for mountain biking, featured berms and jumps, making this a destination for mountain bikers from all over Southern California.
The trails are also popular with hikers. If you are hiking, avoid the trails that are popular with mountain bikers, especially Distortion, Jumping Mouse Trail, and Overdrive.
Greer Ranch is located between San Diego and the Inland Empire, and on weekends, the trails attract riders from both metropolises. Don’t expect to be riding alone. During the week, you’re more likely to find relative solitude.
Greer Ranch is most popular in the cooler months from October to May, as the area regularly soars to over 100 degrees in the summer months.
Access to the area is from Scenic View Drive, which parallels I-215, where it ends at a gate (GPS: 33.622075, -117.171672). There is lots of parking along the road near the trailhead.
There is also a parking lot just on the other side of the 215, at the intersection of Keller Road and Antelope Road (GPS: 33.627331, -117.170665).
