About Sierra County

How to Beat a Sierra County Traffic Ticket

The area now known as Sierra County has been occupied for over 5,000 years. The Miwok tribe lived on the west side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, while the Washoe tribe lived along the region that is now Eastern Sierra County. Cut-eye Foster’s Bar on the western boundary of Sierra County might very well be the first location to be settled by migrant miners, set up in either late 1848 or 1849. Two years after California became a state in 1850, Sierra County was created from Yuba County lands in 1852. It was during the depression of 1893 when the ranching industry took a large hit and dairying began in the valley, slowly growing into the primary industry of the area.

Today, meadow hay, alfalfa, and beef cattle are still a large part of the eastern Sierra County agriculture industry. Although, the county is one of the smaller counties in California, Sierra County stretches 962 square miles and is surrounded by Nevada County to the south, Yuba County on the west, and Plumas, Lassen, and Washoe counties on the north, northeast, and east respectively. Due to most of the lands being used for agricultural purposes or being protected by the federal and local governments, only about 3,000 people live within the county, making the county the second least populous county in California. The area is home to portions of three national forests; Plumas National Forest, Tahoe National Forest, and Toiyabe National Forest.

Mountain biking and river rafting have become significant businesses in the western portion of the county, while hunting and fishing remain constant throughout. Residents and visitors enjoy snowmobiling or other snow activities throughout the mountainous areas of the county during the winter.
