The Applegate-Lassen trail was first traversed by the Applegates in 1843. Later, Peter Lassen promoted the trail as a way to avoid the Forty Mile Desert between Lovelock and Fernley. The Lassen Cutoff led from what is now the Callahan Bridge at Rye Patch Reservoir on the Humboldt River to Rabbit Hole Spring, then to Black Rock Hot Spring and on to California. However, there was very little water at Rabbit Hole and no water between Rabbit Hole and Black Rock Hot Springs.

The Nobles Trail overlapped the beginning of the Applegate-Lassen trail until between Rabbit Hole Spring and Black Rock Hot Spring where the Nobles Trail went towards Trego.
