A Little Bit About Alpine County
Alpine County was created from parts of Amador, El Dorado, Calaveras, Tuolumne, and Mono Counties in 1864.
Alpine County, California, is situated along the crest of the central Sierra Nevada moutain range, south of Lake Tahoe and north of Yosemite. Its name truly describes the area. Rugged, snow-covered peaks, high alpine meadows laced with clear mountain streams, and beautiful forests are its primary geographic features. The main routes entering and exiting Alpine County are State Highways 88, 89, and 4.
Alpine County has the smallest population of all of California's 58 counties. Its population was just 1,175 2010. Most of the county's population is concentrated around a few mountain communities: Markleeville, Woodfords, Bear Valley, and Kirkwood.
Residents of Alpine County enjoy a rural lifestyle, with the convenience of several city areas in the neighboring counties. Markleeville is the county seat and home to many of the county’s offices. Alpine County contains no incorporated cities. Most public services are provided by county departments and agencies or outside agencies.
