This is Tenmile Springs. The Bidwell-Bartleson Party stayed at these Springs for 9 days, the longest on the trail. They remained here while Bartleson and Hopper scouted ahead to find the way to Marys River or the Humboldt River as we know it today.

Historians say that the Hudson Bay Fur Company representative, Peter Skene Ogden with his fur trappers, camped at these springs on December 26, 1828 and again on March 30, 1829.

John Works company camped here in 1831 and Joseph R. Walker on his way to California in 1833, then the Bidwell party in 1841.
