Lassen Trail - Pit River Canyon

"We were obliged to cross the stream quite a number of times.  In consequence of the canons of rock which confine it to a narrow bed." - Amos Batchelder, Sep 29, 1849

OHP description:

Near the present Pit River-Happy Camp Road this old pioneer trail, part of one of the earliest roads in northeastern California, is yet easily traced. Trees eight to ten inches in diameter are growing in the old road bed.
