Tuolumne County is located in the heart of the California “Mother Lode” gold country region in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Just 125 miles east of San Francisco, south of Lake Tahoe, and home to Yosemite National Park and the Stanislaus National Forest, the area abounds with recreational opportunities and beautiful scenery with many lakes, rivers, hiking trails and ski areas within its boundaries. Tuolumne County is rich in California history and visitors can step back in time at Columbia and Railtown 1897 State Historic Parks. A strong arts and cultural presence is felt through the Tuolumne County Arts Alliance, live theater venues, art galleries, special events, and museums. A small community atmosphere is prevalent throughout the County and is the hallmark of Sonora, the county seat and only incorporated city, as well as the towns of Twain Harte, Columbia, Groveland, Jamestown, and Tuolumne.
