Home to almost 3500 folks, this county boasts almost 2.1 square miles per person. Downieville is the county seat and is home to Sierra County offices, the Superior Court, The Western Sierra Medical Clinic, the Yuba Theater and the Downieville Museum. Sierra City has the Kentucky Mine Museum, the Pacific Crest Trail and the Lake Basin Recreational area with its dozens of alpine lakes.

From fishing to hiking to snowshoeing and snowmobiling you will find that exploration invites you at every turn. Here’s a little secret…Sierra County is extremely dog-friendly with most inns and resorts welcoming pets and great places to run and swim and play in the snow with your trusty companions.
