Site information:

The OHP originally put the location of this site as 20730 Temescal Canyon Rd.  There is nothing left of any site, as far as I know, and that address was likely a general location anyway.  Today, a housing development is in that area.

The approximate location of the site was:
33.820343, -117.507795

Plaque information:

A private plaque has been placed at the Dos Lagos center nearby.  

Past the end of Pronio Circle, near the end of the bridge walking path.
