This fine memorial is a tribute to firefighters that have paid the ultimate sacrifice fighting wildland fires in the state of Califorina. Conception came about in 1995 when a group of retirees, fire survivors, CAL FIRE and USDA Forest Service sought to repair and replace missing markers from the Decker Fire of 1959. This fire killed 6 firefighters within the Santa Ana Mountains above Lake Elsinore.
The memorial is located along Ortega Hwy between Elsinore and San Juan Capistrano, a stretch of road with mornings geared toward the sport bike crowd and cruisers later in the day.
Just a short ride east of the memorial you will find the Lookout Roadhouse, fine food, biker friendly, and a great view of Lake Elsinore. Great place for a break. If you are a camper there are some pretty good places to set up a tent in this area.
Memorial site is available 24/7.
