From K-Falls, take Hwy 140 East toward Lakeview (Hwy 39 goes south to Merrill and CA at this junction). Mark your mileage at this point. Take Hwy 140 east about 13 miles to the small town of Dairy. Just a few miles beyond Dairy (still on hwy 140) you will cross Hildebrand Road and the next junction you come to will be the Yonna Valley store (on the left ) and Bliss Road (County Road 1057). Turn right at this junction. The pond will be on your right on this road about 1/4–1/2mile from the junction. There is little space to pull off the road so be careful. Although there’s usually not much traffic, there are trucks and hills and curves. Use caution when pulling over.
If you continue straight on this road it will bear right and then you will come to a stop at Hwy 70. Turn right to return to Hwy 140 in a mile or two and then turn left on Hwy 140 to return to K-Falls; or turn left and go into Bonanza and on to Gerber Reservoir using the directions for that location.Directions
