Plumas National Forest Guide

Plumas National Forest lies on more than 1 million acres near the northern end of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California. The area started as the Plumas Forest Reserve in 1905, but it didn't take long to be transferred to the U.S. Forest Service a year later. Now 85% of Plumas National Forest sits in Plumas County, with the remaining 15% split among eastern Butte, northern Sierra, southern, Lassen, and northeast Yuba counties. Hiking enthusiasts will be in for a treat, as Plumas National Forest offers more than 10 trails to discover. With swimming, fishing, boating, and nature-watching, there is something for everyone here.
