Note: If you are being dropped off in Sierra City by a friend, parking in Downieville is limited to the following areas: Highway 49, both north and south of Downieville. The USFS Downieville Ranger Station, located across the bridge from the Pizzeria and behind the Courthouse. Cannon Point, located at the western end of Downieville along Highway 49.
Parking is always a major issue in Downieville. We recommend you use the shuttle services provided, especially on Saturday, as the number of cars outnumber the town's population. Be curteous to the locals and respect all private property.
Special Note:Nothing makes the local CHP happier than writing mountain bikers tickets. Don't give him the pleasure, please be smart about where you park, especially in town, or you will be ticketed and towed!
