This route was first used in 1852 by emigrants to Northern California seeking to avoid the hardships of the Lassen Trail. It crossed the desert from the Humboldt River in Nevada, passed this point, and proceeded over the mountains to the town of Shasta. Later, 1859-1861, it was known as the Fort Kearney, South Pass and Honey Lake Wagon Road.  From this point Peter Lassen and J. G. Bruff On October 4, 1850 saw Honey Lake while on an expedition hunting for Gold Lake.
