Lassen Emigrant Trail, Bieber
California State Historic Landmark 763
#763 Lassen Emigrant Trail
Peter Lassen opened the Lassen Emigrant Trail in 1848 when he led a 12-wagon emigrant train from Missouri to California. The route passed near this place and was extensively travelled during the years 1848-53 by emigrants seeking gold, adventure and a new life in the west. Because of the hardships of the route and the hostility of the Indians, the trail was little used after 1853.
