#546 The Applegate-Lassen Trail
This spot marks the convergence of two pioneer trails widely used by emigrants during the years 1846-1850. The Applegate Trail, established in 1846, led from the Humboldt River in Nevada to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. The Lassen Cut-off, established by Peter Lassen in 1848, turned south at Goose Lake to the northern mines and settlements of California.
