Pilot Rock

MR 602

Approximately 40 – 50 miles east of Eureka, Pilot Rock was named by sheep herders who used the landmark to guide them from the coast to inland areas. In the late 1800s there was significant traffic along the major ridges in Humboldt and Trinity County, way more than there is now. Here are some pics I took a little closer to the rock a while back.

If you are interested in this area, check this out: Historic Trails of Pilot Ridge Country by Thomas Keter.

An Overview. Thomas Keter, the author of the paper I linked above, shows this picture in his paper. This is really cool, because you can really see the big picture. Im would be standing right below what is labeled High Salt Ground.  Check it out.
