Greaterville was once a small mining community in the eastern foothills of the Santa Rita Mountains. The town, founded in the 1879s and supposedly named after an area pioneer, supported placer mining for gold. Today, the area is gated private property with prominent no-trespassing signs.

Greaterville Road is a short trip through mostly private enclaves in the Coronado National Forest. The well-maintained dirt track traverses an oak and juniper forest, passing a picturesque bucolic ranch with lovely views of the Santa Rita Mountains. Small cous deer often lurk in the roadside shadows. Along the way, the trail intersects Los Posos Gulch, FR 4068, and Melendrez Pass, FR 165.

Greaterville Road is not a good camping trail. Substantial camping is available nearby, especially in the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area.
