Dos Piedras Marker
Blue Heron Restaurant and Tavern
25300 Steelhead Boulevard
Two Rock

A marker is mounted on the front of the building:

To the east, at the top of the ridge, sits the landmark “Dos Piedras”, erroneously translated into “two rock”, between which ran the main Indian trail from Bodega Bay to the inland valley and to the Sierra. The rocks also mark the near juncture of four original Mexican land grants – Blucher Rancho, Rancho Roblar de la Miseria, Rancho Balsa de Tomales and Rancho Laguna de San Antonio.

The village of Two Rock to the south, once the site of a Spanish cantonment, had its own post office and railroad station until the middle of this century; and remains the geographical center of a friendly and close-knit community of ranchers and dairymen.
