Sierra County Horse Farms
Sierra County is named for the Sierra Nevada,
“Snow-covered, saw-toothed mountains.” The county is not as mountainous as the
name suggests and includes remote sections of scenic highways that wind through
small towns established during the Gold Rush.
Horseback riding and packing in this region are what dreams are made of.
The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the Sierra Buttes and can be reached from Packer Saddle
or the Sierra Buttes Lookout Trail. There are numerous campgrounds in the area with trail-heads
that provide access to the many lakes in this area. There is also horseback riding along Gold Lake,
Henness Pass, and Sierra Buttes PCT.
Sierra is the second-least populous county in California with lots of open space to play in.
The county seat is Downieville, and the only incorporated city is Loyalton.
After the discovery of gold in the Sierra foothills sparked the California Gold Rush,
more than 16,000 miners settled in Sierra County between 1848-1860. Most mining settlements in the county sprung up along the North and Middle Forks
of the Yuba River, both of which had rich deposits of gold. While some of the mining boom
towns faded away once gold fever died down, other settlements such as Downieville and Sierra City
