Ramona locals have a window into history at the Guy B. Woodward Museum, a monument to the early days of Ramona. The museum is made up of a complex of old buildings from gold rush times, all restored to maintain them for posterity. The museum is run by the Ramona Pioneer Historical Society, members of which help man the museum and dress up to give a "living history" feel to the complex. The museum also keeps its collection open for research purposes, with more than 2,000 photographs, early newspapers, a series of pioneer biographies, antique clothing and tools, and more available in the collection.
Mount Gower Open Spac
Ramona locals have a welcome gateway into nature at the Mount Gower Open Space Preserve just south of town. This chaparral-heavy preserve runs up the mountain and showcases the vegetation style most characteristic of the area, though oak copses and other vegetation are also present in the preserve. The preserve is shot through with 8 miles of trails, providing excellent hiking, trail-running, and mountain-biking opportunities for the people of Ramona. The preserve boasts a primitive campground complete with running water, making it a great spot to make a weekend of a two-day hiking and camping trip.
