Rancho de los Californios is a former settlement in Fresno County, California.[2] It was located east of Pueblo de las Juntas on high ground near the south bank of the San Joaquin River.[2] Its site is near the corner of Ashlan and North Lake Avenues, 4miles north of the Whitesbridge Road and 6 miles west of Biola, California.[3]

Located on the Eastern route of El Camino Viejo, the place was used as a hideout for horse thieves during Spanish and Mexican rule, and continued to be a place of relative safety for outlaws during American rule.[2]
