Max Rockatansky:
Put something together as a standalone blog on the first CA 188 which was aligned on Fallen Leaf Lake Road:

If I remember correctly, Caltrans officials literally forgot the highway even existed, and they deleted it once they found out what Route 188 actually was. Kinda funny how there can be a highway so useless that even the agency responsible for maintaining it forgot it existed.

Max Rockatansky:
I mean hey, it was mentioned twice in the 1924-67 run of California Highways & Public Works.  That’s still one better than CA 194 north of Downieville ever got.

pderocco:
At least Fallen Leaf Road is now paved. Was CA-194 always dirt, or was it depaved at some point?

Max Rockatansky:
194 was never paved.  I’m not even sure if it was ever even graded.
