More about this marker. Directions to Noble's Bungalow Marker: From Shingletown go east on Highway 44. Turn right on Alward Road (Way). Follow the 'main', gravel road toward Nora and Grace Lakes (named after Noble's daughters). This involves making a left turn, followed by a couple of right turns. The road will change names a couple of times, but they are mostly un-signed. Proceed through the Nora Lake Picnic Grounds, then make a hard left turn onto a dirt road. Proceed around Nora Lake then about 1/4 mile to the end of the road. The pile of rubble at the end of the road is what is left of Noble's Bungalow.
