Grass Valley, the largest city in western Nevada County, has a population of nearly 13,000 people.

A year-round climate of moderate weather with warm summers and short winters offers outstanding recreational opportunities, including fishing, whitewater rafting, hiking, biking, boating, hunting, skiing, golfing, gold panning, and camping.
