Directions: From the website: "Take Antelope Valley Freeway east from Solemint Junction, passing the weird sandstone formations of Vasquez Rocks, named for the bandit Tiburcio Vasquez who used this natural hiding place to good advantage during his exploits in the 1860's. At 17.8 miles from Solemint Junction, exit on Crown Valley Road, turn right. Proceed 1.3 miles to Syracuse Avenue, turn right, and go .3 mile to Hubbard Road. Turn left onto this dirt road. The agate is found in float on the right side of the road for the next 2 miles. Hike on the slopes of these hills to find the agates. Be sure to stay out of posted areas and don't leave any litter, as this is one sure way of causing the locality to be closed to future collecting. "

I was wondering if it was out of date.  Surprisingly a lot of internet information is outdated.  Thanks for the info, and some day I'll figure out the best way to let people tag the status of the location.

I just checked out this location, and I think the initial information from highdesertinsider.com is pretty out of date. The area is very built up at this point along Hubbard Rd. with private properties lining the entire dirt road. I did find a nice specimen at the end of Hubbard R. near Escondido Canyon Rd., but overall the area is too populated to do any real gathering.
