Sierra County is located in the heart of the northern section of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The scenery sparkles with each new season. Spring melts the tapestry of winter blanket, then gracefully captures the fields and rock crevices with a rainbow of color. Gold, red, and yellows of fall adorn the alpine forests, river canyons, valleys, and mountain peaks.

Sierra County is comprised of 3 very different regions. The West side is mountainous and heavily forested, supporting miners and loggers. On the East side is a large alpine valley, home to farmers and cattle raising. Midway between lies the area of "Lake Basin", a collection of some 50 lakes, studded with resorts and campgrounds.

Family fun is enjoyed through hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, camping, wildlife viewing, swimming, and fishing.

The County currently has 3,300 residents.
