After Mussey Grade was built, the Atkinson Toll Road became known as the Foster Truck Trail named after Joseph Foster who also ran a stage line from the railroad terminal at his ranch to the back country for thirty years. His coaches provided transportation from his terminal to Ramona, Warner's and Julian. Foster became known fondly as "Uncle Joe" and local settlers appreciated his daily mail and passenger service.
