About the Forest

map showing Tahoe National Forest in relation to a map of California.The Tahoe National Forest straddles the crest of the Sierra Nevada mountains in northern California, and encompasses a vast territory, from the golden foothills on the western slope to the high peaks of the Sierra crest.

We are bordered on the north by the Plumas National Forest, on the south by the Eldorado National Forest, on the east by the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forests and Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. On the western border are the foothills above the great Sacramento Valley.

Our Forest Headquarters is located in Nevada City, California, with District Offices in Foresthill, Camptonville, Sierraville, and Truckee.
