December 7, 2007 the short piece north of Tulelake (Tulelake, California) is however part of the federal Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway. The portion north of SR 299 is also in the Interregional Road System as a High Emphasis Route and in the National Highway System (National Highway System (United States)). North of SR 299, the highway was built by the federal government (Federal government of the United States) and turned over to the state in about 1940; the remainder was built by a joint highway district of Lassen (Lassen County, California) and Modoc (Modoc County, California) Counties, completed in 1956, and given to the state in 1959. thumb left SR 139 through the Modoc National Forest (Image:Modoc-map.png) State Route 139 begins at SR 36 (California State Route 36) in Susanville (Susanville, California), and heads northeast up Antelope Mountain along the eastern edge of Susanville Ranch Park before turning north and descending into the Eagle Lake Basin, passing along the eastern edge of Eagle Lake (Eagle Lake (Lassen County)) and later the Said Valley Reservoir. The highway continues north and northwest through valleys and over hills and through a part of the Modoc National Forest, through the community of Avila Place (Avila Place, California), and then enters the east end of the Big Valley (Big Valley (Pit River)), where it begins to overlap (overlap (road)) SR 299 (California State Route 299) through Adin (Adin, California). The combined routes continue northerly through another part of the forest and over Adin Pass into the Warm Springs Valley, where SR 139 splits to the northwest near Canby (Canby, California). History In 1925, a state-created "California Highway Advisory Committee" recommended a number of additions to the state highway system; among these was a route from Susanville (Susanville, California) to the Oregon state line towards Klamath Falls (Klamath Falls, OR), via Bieber (Bieber, California). This would be part of a road connecting Reno, Nevada and Klamath Falls east of the Sierra Nevada (Sierra Nevada (California)), which would attract heavy traffic and improve access to Crater Lake (Crater Lake National Park) and Lassen Volcanic (Lassen Volcanic National Park) National Park (National Park Service)s. California Highway Advisory Committee and Arthur Hastings Breed, Report of a Study of the State Highway System of California, California State Printing Office, 1925, p. 98 A local county road already followed this path, but it was unpaved (unpaved road), mostly dirt (dirt road) and gravel (gravel road) but with sections of rock and bad sand. This was close to the present SR 139, with notable deviations around the areas of Hayden Hill (Hayden Hill, California), Bieber and Lookout (Lookout, California), and Malin, Oregon (as Tule Lake covered SR 139's current location).

The article concluded by stating El Camino Sierra was "a highway with a hundred by-ways, each by-way with a hundred wonders". The article also implored the state legislature to extend El Camino Sierra to Truckee (Truckee, California), Quincy (Quincy, California) and Susanville (Susanville, California) using a route similar to modern State Route 89 (California State Route 89), SR 70 (California State Route 70) returning to US 395 (U.S. Route 395 in California).
