Site information:

From I-15, take Old Temescal Canyon Rd S 0.4 mi to Lawson Rd, then go W 0.2 mi to dirt rd (just past a fence, when I was there), then S 0.1 mi to site

The rock may be in the trees, depending on what landscaping has been done.  There was a remnant of a chain link fence surrounding it, but it was accessible.

OHP description:

As early as 1818, Don Leandro Serrano had cattle, sheep, cultivated land, and orchards in Temescal Valley. The boulder placed by residents of Temescal Valley marks the site of the first house in Riverside County, erected by Leandro Serrano about May 1824.
