Graeagle lies in the middle of the outdoor recreational playground of Plumas County in northeastern California. Plumas County is one of the most unspoiled natural areas of the state and is comprised of more than 1.6 million acres, most of which is national forest land. Nearly 1,000 miles of streams and rivers, along with fifty lakes, provide endless outdoor recreational opportunities. Enjoy a wide range of activities from hiking along any one of hundreds of trails, to cross country and downhill skiing. Golf is one of the most popular sports in Plumas County, and Graeagle alone offers six golf courses set among the lush wooded forestlands with spectacular mountain backdrops. No matter what kind of water sport you enjoy, boating, water skiing, jet skiing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking or fishing, you'll find the perfect lake or stream near Graeagle to fulfill your desires. The Middle Fork of the Feather River is designated as a National Wild & Scenic River and is one of the jewels of Plumas County, known for its exceptional trout fishing. The small town of Graeagle offers clean mountain air, beauty, solitude and more outdoor fun than one can imagine. Anytime of the year is beautiful here, but late fall is perhaps one of the most spectacular times to visit Graeagle when the burnished golds and yellows and brilliant reds of the forests are set against a royal blue sky, making it a must see for every nature lover.

Graeagle Weather & Climate

Northeastern California , where the Sierra Nevada and Cascade Mountain Ranges meet, has a four season climate, with cold, alpine mountain winters and mild summers. Many of the mountain communities, including Graeagle, Truckee and Donner Lake, experience what is called an "inversion," whereby cold air is trapped overnight by the mountain peaks, thus the reason for the extreme cold temperatures in the very early morning hours (even in summertime.) However, as the sun rises, the temperature climbs and daytime highs are usually quite pleasant. Large amounts of snow are received in the higher elevations of the Sierras - up to 40 feet. Rain is possible any month of the year, although most occurs October through April. Mountain weather conditions can change quickly, and visitors should remember that rain in the lower elevations can mean snow, sleet or ice in the higher elevations.
