Kila Springs in the Motherlode

East of the hamlet of Comptche, the pot-holed pavement ascends and descends a series of high ridges, winding past ranches and secluded backcountry retreats, threading the redwood grove that harbors some of the world’s tallest trees, skirting a venerable hot springs resort and topping out at almost 2,600 feet above sea level looking north to the peaks of the Yolla Bolly-Middle Eel Wilderness.

Follow that road to the new offices of Kila Springs Press, at Blue Oak Farm above Weber Creek between Rescue and Lotus, in California's Motherlode, three miles from Sutter's Mill, where the first glint of California gold was spied in January 1848.
