Jim Blakley Notes
The spring and camp is located about 2 miles south of Aliso Park or Campground on a continuation of Aliso Canyon Road 27W01. This part of the road is a 4-wheel drive road and is seldom maintained. The McPherson family raised hogs in he area. They were let run loose to feed on the acorns often abundant in the area.
