Jeff’s Niles Canyon Mortar
One bedrock mortar and a house pit along Alameda Creek
Elevation 217 ft.
This is another one of Jeff’s beautiful single mortar sites.
The site is on the left side of the trail under the trees.
These rocks sit on a terrace above Alameda Creek, which flows in the background, and are arranged in a horseshoe shape (the bigger tree obscures one). We believe a structure would have stood within the perimeter of the horseshoe.
A closer look at the mortar rock.
