CHL No. 736 Letts Valley - Colusa


NO. 736 LETTS VALLEY - This valley was settled in 1855 by Jack and David Lett. The present lake spillway is the site of a tunnel that they built to facilitate drainage. The brothers were killed in 1877 in an attempt to prevent squatters from settling on their land.

The road to Stoneyford and just past it is a lovely drive. BUT, make sure your tires are in good condition because The last 9 miles to Letts Valley are rocky and winding. There is a nice campground at the lake.
