This tablet marks the route of those early pioneers who, in 1852, first went over the Noble Pass linking the Humboldt-Nevada road with Shasta and Northern California, and their road is followed at this locality by the Park Highway.

Dedicated to the pioneers of Northern California by Mr. & Mrs. B.F. Loomis. Sponsored by the Shasta Historical Society, MCMXXXI.

OHP description:

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.
