About Downieville
Attractions

Once a gold mining town, Downieville now serves as a hub for outdoor activities in Sierra County. Downieville vacation rentals offer the chance to escape to nature and enjoy the best of the Tahoe National Forest. Come for the rest and relaxation, stick around for the biking, swimming, and more.

Where is Downieville?

About 100 miles north of Sacramento, this tiny town is one of several in the Tahoe National Forest, which sits toward the north end of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Lake Tahoe is an easy day trip from here, with Tahoe City just a 75-mile drive. North Lake Tahoe is a little closer, about 70 miles from Downieville.

Downieville’s Mountain Biking and More

This town is known for its mountain biking trails and races, especially the Downieville Classic, an annual August race on the 15-mile Downieville Downhill trail. Rent a Downieville cabin and rest up for the race, or cheer on your cyclist buddies from the sidelines. Either way, don’t miss this weekend of fun in the mountains. If you’re not a biker, explore the town’s variety of hiking trails - there’s plenty of fresh air to be enjoyed.

Whether you’re looking for a quaint cabin for a Sierra Nevada getaway or a home base for a mountain biking adventure, our Downieville rentals have you covered. This town may be small, but there’s always room for visitors!
