Trip Report - June 27, 1991 - Jack Parsell
ACCESS ROUTE: From Burley, Idaho take route 27 for 21 miles S to Oakley. Turn R (West) onto Main St., then L (South) on College St. which at 1.5 mi. becomes Goose Creek Rd. Bear left at the turnoff to Goose Creek Reservoir, then up to the top of a hill and on down to Goose Creek. Follow the creek to the UT line at about 21 mi. S of Oakland at a cattle guard (no sign). Stop about 1 mi. farther at the Fred Bedkey ranch and get permission to go on the property. From the UT line it is 3.1 mi. to where a gate blocks a road at a bend in the main road. This farm road, which bears off to the right, is part of the old Emigrant/California Trail. Park and hike 0.7 mi. to the NV border. Then hike 2.1 miles N in Nevada to the tri-point along the NV-UT fence line, wading Goose Creek, shortly after starting out, or in high water, use the bridge about 1/2 mi. W, then return to the NV-UT line. Check with local residents for other possible routes.
The state of Utah had a new granite monument made for this location in 1998. After much research the BLM cadastral survey office found the exact corner was beneath the old 1873 marker at the intersection of the state line fences. Evidence of burnt wood chips placed below the old marker by Mr. Majors were discovered. The new monument was installed and a dedication ceremony was held on October 2, 1999.
