18th Annual Lassen-Applegate Emigrant Trail Ride.

High Rocks Canyon

‬High Rocks Canyon, on the Lassen-Applegate Trail Ride.

STAGECOACH, NV (March 30, 2012) -- Relive the gold rush era as you travel the famous Lassen-Applegate Emigrant Trail in your sport utility vehicle (SUV), marveling at such sights as the beautiful Black Rock Desert, the majestic High Rock Canyon, Double Hot Springs, and Soldier Meadows.

‬All of these sights as well as stories from early emigrant diaries will spring to life for participants on the 18th annual Lassen-Applegate Trail Ride, Friday, July 20 through Monday, July 23, hosted by the High Rock Trekkers Four Wheel Drive Club.

This exciting 200-mile journey begins near Imlay, NV, follows the same wagon train route used by Peter Lassen in 1849, and concludes in Surprise Valley, CA near Cedarville in Modoc County.  This was also an alternate route used by early pioneers to reach central Oregon.

"For me, this trail is special and as a historian, I get to relive the past by thinking of John C. Fremont, Kit Carson, and Thomas 'Brokenhand' Fitzpatrick and many other brave men and women as they made this arduous journey from small towns throughout the Midwest," said Warner Anderson, trail boss from the High Rock Trekkers.

Anderson said the trip is open to all four-wheel drive enthusiasts and their families. It is not a difficult route, but there are a few places where four-wheel drive will be required or where trail committee instructions must be followed.
