South Road - Forks Of The Yreka Trail
"All in need of provisions were supplied by a government
agent at this camp. Near this point the road forks-one
leading to Jacksonville, in Oregon, and the other to
Yreka, Northern California."
James Cowden, Oct. 2, 1853

"This morning the volunteers considered us out of danger
and—left us to go on alone-we had tolerable good road.
Four miles from camp we came to where the Oregon Trail
strikes off to the right."-George McCowen, Aug 27, 1854
