Bass Hill

Bridge Bay turnoff and I-5, 6 mi N of Central Valley, CA


"BASS HILL - On the summit of Bass Hill a remnant of the California-Oregon stage road crosses the Pacific Highway and descends to the Pit River. Because this was a favorite 'holdup' spot in stage-coach days, a marker has been placed there in memory of W. L. Smith, division stage agent of the California and Oregon Stage Company, and of the pioneer stage drivers along this road." - California Historic Landmark No.148
