Plaque:

Private plaque

Notes:

The small silver signs were placed by Emigrant Trails West. Their website suggests there are 22 of them for Henness Pass. I happened upon only three.


From the plaque:

The main emigrant trail between Virginia City, Nevada and Marysville, California, the Henness Pass Road was in use as early as 1849. At that time, this was the only road through the Henness Pass.
