(Piute) is a small agricultural and
ranching community in Grass Valley. It is adjacent to U-62, fifteen
miles north of Antimony and twenty miles
south of Koosharem. Early names were Lower
Grass Valley because it was situated in the valley, and Spring Creek
because of its early location by Spring Creek. The name comes from the
sharp right angle the road takes from the main highway into the community.
