Quincy is a rural mountain community of approximately 10,000 nestled on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in Plumas County. It is the county seat and is known for its clean, attractive downtown with buildings that have been the focus of years of preservation and restoration. Many of the town's buildings feature enchanting murals of historic Quincy. The town of Quincy has a strong commitment to the arts. A number of dramas, musical and art shows are held in the town each year, and many events are staged at the historic Town Hall Theater. For outdoor recreation, Quincy is surrounded by the Plumas National Forest, and sits between the towns of Paradise and Portola along Highway 70 near the Feather River and Antelope Lake. A combination of pine covered hills and meadows, ranches and farms span the landscape as you approach the town. Just a few of the outdoor activities available include hiking, mountain biking, fishing and boating, camping and snow skiing in nearby Susanville and Cedarville. Quincy is a charming town with lots to offer both nature lovers and those interested in the arts, and for anyone looking for peaceful escape from the cities and crowded tourist spots.

Quincy 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.
