Vernal Pools and 1855 Adobe

Saves: 8
Check-ins: 3
These structures have survived for more than 150 years and the Moreno Adobe is perhaps the oldest building in Riverside County. The adobes were originally built to house ranchers and vaqueros. A 400-year-old oak tree shades the adobes and the grass, making it a nice place to stop and have a picnic. To reach the adobes, drive south on Clinton Keith past thevisitor center for several miles, pass Tenaja and Rancho California roads, and park in the lot on the left. Hike to the vernal pools and follow signs to the adobes. One way it's 1.7 miles of an easy-to-moderate trail. There are several trails of varying lengths that return to the parking lot.
