California Historical Landmark 336
State Route 70
Lowest pass in the Sierra Nevada Mountains
Discovered in 1851 by James P. Beckwourth
Dedicated to the discoverer and to the pioneers who passed along this trail by the Las Plumas Parlor No. 254 N.D.G.W.
No Desert's waste nor Redskins bold could swerve them from this western strand - naught could their courage e'er dismay in onward trudging day by day.
