In 1852, William H. Nobles located an easier and more direct route to California for gold-seekers and pioneers heading west. Nobles Trail contributed importantly to the development of Northern California and led to additional transportation routes. Extensive use of Nobles Trail continued until the Transcontinental Railroad was completed in 1869. The Shingletown area offered several sites with water and grazing to provide welcome rest stops for weary travelers and their animals after their travail of crossing the Nevada Desert and the Cascade Mountains. Sections of the important trail remain visible throughout Shingletown. Today's traveler can experience a portion of Nobles Trail by driving Emigrant Trail Road from Shingletown toward Lake McCumber.
