Rivers and Streams – There are endless rivers and streams all over Plumas County. Starting with the great Feather River with its many branches and merges. Enjoy River Rafting, Kayaking, swimming (make sure it’s a safe place to swim, watch for signs that say NO SWIMMING… there are a few places on the River that have terrible undertows, but they are marked).
Hiking and Biking – Hundreds of miles of trails throughout the county.
Railroading – Plumas County has a rich history in the railroad. The Plumas County Museum has a wonderful exhibition depicting this history. There are self guided tours throughout the Feather River Canyon and surrounding areas.
Golfing – There are several golf courses in Plumas County, all within a 45 minute drive of Quincy.
High Sierra Music Festival – The festival is held each year the weekend of July 4. The four-day festival features an eclectic mix of some of the most famous national and international names in jazz, newgrass, bluegrass and other improvisational music forms such as jamband music. Other represented genres include funk, afrobeat, electronica, and roots rock. Away from the music stages, patrons can attend workshops and exercise classes, shop for arts and crafts, or enjoy a wide variety of food and drink. Children’s activities are featured throughout the weekend.
While you’re here to check out the colors stay and enjoy some of the many Fall Festivities Quincy holds: Mountain Harvest Festival, Fall Fest, Girls Night Out and a county wide Barn Quilt Tour.
Spring – Spring in the mountains is just delicious. There is no other word for it. People are giddy with excitement after the cold winter months. It seem like everyone, even the dogs, come down with a fervent case of spring fever, the flowers are hung in front of shops and we celebrate by being outside as much as possible.
