Sierra Valley is one of the largest alpine valleys in North America measuring over 100,000 acres at 5,000 feet elevation. To the west, lies the forested crest of the Sierras. On the east, the valley was formed by an ancient lake bedthat was once part of the great inland ocean of Lake Lahontan. Sierra Valley is recognized for migrating bird species and resident raptors who share this habitat with deer, antelope, 50 species of butterflies and other wildlife. Convenient access to the area year 'round via state highways, Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and Nervino Airport for private jet aircraft. Just a 45 minute drive from the charming rail town of Downtown Truckee.
