of Hwy 66 made up part of the Applegate Trail. There is a creek that flows along Buckhorn Springs Rd known as 'Emigrant Creek' as well as a nearby reservoir known as 'Emigrant Lake' that are named after this historic wagon route.

There are numerous websites devoted to the history of the Applegate Trail. My favorite is the Trails West, Inc. organization run by a group of volunteers and sells books on numerous emigrant trails of the West Coast. There is a photo tour of the Applegate Trail on the Trails West Inc. website that contains photos of many historical 'T' markers made of railroad ties that are sporadically placed along the trail route.
