This stone monument, built in 1935, stands at the historic north entrance to Lassen Volcanic National Park from Lassen National Forest. Before the highway intersection was rerouted to its current location, visitors drove past this monument into the park.

The Park road is one of the first built in national parks designated to "lay lightly on land." The road blends in with the surrounding environment and provides views of the most scenic and geological interest. Road construction by the National Park Service and Bureau of Public Roads began in 1925 through 1931. The Civilian Conservation Corps continued this work from 1933 to 1941.

The original route has been maintained through the years and today, visitors enjoy the scenic drive as it traverses active geothermal areas, sub-alpine forests, mountain meadows and lava fields.
