The rock is in there, in the trees, sort of surrounded by a chain link fence. It's actually not too hard to get to.

From the Guidebook:

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.
