Hip little mountain town in the northern reaches of the Sierra Nevada, California. A big town (for this area) of the dense forest, Quincy is totally surrounded by wilderness lands, back roads and rural communities. Historic downtown area is alive and well. Pangaea Cafe is open late and often has live music. Gasoline, motels, restaurants, RV parks, and home to the hipsters High Sierra Music Festival - 20 years running!
