A prehistory problem is formulated for large occasional fluctuations in noise-driven systems. It has been studied theoretically and experimentally, thereby illuminating the concept of optimal paths and making it possible to visualize and investigate them. The prehistory probability distribution measured for a white-noise-driven system, taken as an example, is shown to be in agreement with the theory.
