Also see . . .  History of Etna, California - smalltowngems.com. With the discovery of gold (1851-1852) at Scott Bar and Yreka travel through Scott Valley increased greatly. One of the main trails to Oregon led through the valley from the south. Another trail, leading to the Salmon Mountains, branched off the main trail near the site of Old Etna.
