Alleghany is one of several towns tucked along the Pliocene Ridge in Sierra County. Situated about 20 miles off of California State Route 49 near Camptonville and North San Juan, the Pliocene Ridge Road takes you up to the ridge above the Middle Yuba River which winds through the forested canyons and communities of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

The remote town of Alleghany, CA sprang up in the early 1850s as a result of several local mining operations and since then has continued to represent the era when gold mining was a significant industry in the area.

Booking an RV rental in Alleghany is the beginning of an adventure around the rugged wilderness and historic mines of the California Gold Country.
