"This little-used route initially follows the historic route of the Nobles Emigrant Trail through serene forest before returning on the snow-covered Main Park Road. From CA 44, approximately 13 miles southwest of Old Station, turn onto CA 89 at Crossroads junction. Travel a short distance past the entrance station to the parking area. From the parking area, work your way west past Reflection Lake to the beginning of the service road near the park entrance station. The route forsakes the road past Summertown and follows and arcing route up a gullbetween Table Mountain and the Chaos Jumbles." Read more

"Probably no other maintained trail in the park receives so little use. The reasons are obvious: lack of views and lack of water. Besides devout solitude seekers, history buffs and nature lovers are perhaps the only ones willing to explore this route. While following in the steps of pioneers, you can enjoy a quiet stroll on the mildly graded trail through serene forest. Beginning at a closed gate, follow a service road north for 0.6 mile to its end at the historic site of Summertown. From there, the narrower Nobles Trail strikes east up a gully separating Table Mountain from Chaos Jumbles, a huge rockfall avalanche that broke loose from Chaos Crags. After about a half-mile, sharp-eyed naturalists may spy a couple of prominent Douglas-firs. Rare in the park, the Douglas-firs here live among strange bedfellows: Jeffrey, lodgepole, and a few sugar pines." Read more
