This has never been put to a map before. Eventually there will be a route with waypoints from New Helvetia (Sacramento) to near Redding at the extreme northern end of the Sacramento Valley. It will also have the second exploratory route from Peter Lassen's Rancho to Tule Lake on todays CA/OR border.
