Plumas / Sierra Counties Neighborhood Profile

From Truckee, State Hwy 89 leads south to Tahoe City and north to Plumas and Sierra Counties.  It doesn’t take long to start leaving civilization behind, and enter a by-gone era of logging and ranching communities.

The first town on our northward journey takes us to Sierraville.  Small and rural, with a rich ranching history set at the southern end of the peaceful Sierra Valley.  Many locals from Truckee have moved here in the last 10 years for a slower pace, and a little less snow.  Take a right in Sierraville, and the next stop is Loyalton.

Loyalton once centered around logging and the Sierra Pacific Mill that is now closed.  There is still a thriving community here, with a high school, and a big commuter population to Reno and Truckee.  Continuing on from here will take us to Hwy. 70 and the small map stops of Vinton and Chilcoot.

Had we taken a left in Sierraville, we would have come to the towns of Sattley, and then on to Graeagle and eventually Portola and Quincy in Plumas County.  Golf is a big draw in Graeagle, and several top quality courses are open for play starting in the spring.  There is also the scenic Gold Lakes area, Plumas-Eureka State Park, and World class mountain biking in Downieville.  These folks have created a fantastic site that gives you tons more information about the Plumas and Graeagle areas.

There are plenty of real estate options in Sierra and Plumas Counties, ranging from entry level homes in Loyalton under $100,000 to huge ranch estates on hundreds of acres for several million dollars.

If you’re willing to drive an extra hour or so, but looking to get away from it all, Sierra and Plumas County Real Estate is worth exploring.
