Fall is one of the most exciting times to visit an apple orchard during the apple season when the ciders, pies, pastries, fritters and apple butters are fresh and tasty.  Riley’s at Los Rios Rancho in Oak Glen doesn’t let all the wholesome goodness go to waste. No! They celebrate.  Between two sets of mountains  (San Bernardino and Little San Bernardino Mountains) just 15 miles east of the city of San Bernardino, Oak Glen is located  at an elevation of 4,734 feet. The public is invited to visit, pick apples, buy produce and come to the festivals, dances, concerts and hoedowns.  See for schedule.

Saturdays & Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. you can pick apples, pumpkins, & berries, take a hayride, watch apple cider pressing, archery, and more!
