|Landmark #11||Shasta County||Visited: Sept. 27, 2014||Plaque? YES! 🙂|
|What is it?||A plaque marking an important vista point on the Noble Emigrant Trail!|
|What makes it historical?||THE GUIDE SAYS: William H. Noble, accompanied by a party of citizens, showed the route for a wagon road across the Sierra Nevada in May 1852. It was from this point that emigrants got their first glimpse of the Sacramento Valley.
OTHER TIDBITS: Mr. Noble’s Route was a luxury compared to Peter Lassen’s! There was more grass, water, and wood along the entire way, and only 25 miles between watering holes! It also cut off several days of travel time, and for this reason, it marked the end of use for Lassen’s trail!
This landmark is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places!
