On Foot: Little Grass Valley Reservoir for a day when flat sounds good

Full story: Chico Enterprise-Record

We drove through the woods east of Oroville, following little Highway 120 north to the quaint Gold Rush-era towns of Clipper Mills, Strawberry Valley and American House on our way to Little Grass Valley Reservoir.

Highway 120? Last I heard Highway 120 runs through Yosemite. It is no longer known as Wyandotte Irrigation District but South Feather Water and Power. Please be sure to double check your facts before publishing them.

You never get on highway 20 to get to Little Grass Valley Lake from Chico. You do however drive on Forest Route 120.

I wouldn't recommend Little Grass Valley. Mosquitoes, crowded camps, low water, poor fishing, bad roads, etc. No wonder people go elsewhere.

There is nothing wrong with this lake.

Its a beautiful lake and perfect for boating and jet skiing. All it is missing is a 1950's lodge to complete the picture.

The water is very clean. I was up at the lake on July 3rd and the level was at the brim of the dam.
