Things to Know

Sierra City, California
Sierra City is a small community of about 225 people located at an elevation of just 4200 feet above sea level on the pacific side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Our winters are more mild than areas like Lake Tahoe and Truckee. The small towns up here tend to close pretty early so bring supplies!
