Welcome to Grizzly Ranch - One of the Many Marvels of the "Lost Sierra"


Set within a million acres of national and state forestland lies Grizzly Ranch, a community endowed with an expanse of natural beauty – glistening alpine lakes, wild rivers, wondrous valleys, wildlife, trails, and quaint towns. Grizzly Ranch is just one of the many marvels of the Lost Sierra, a region only an hour north of Lake Tahoe.

Milder winters than most mountain towns and more pleasant summers than the central valley make Grizzly Ranch a place to enjoy year-round outdoor recreation.

Located 4 miles from Portola, Calif., Grizzly Ranch is less than an hour drive from Truckee and Reno and approximately a four hour and thirty-minute drive from the San Francisco Bay Area. 


Absent Are Crowds and Congestion 

The “Lost Sierra” greets travelers with vast valley landscapes of ranches, livestock, and an expanse of vistas peaking through craggy peaks and rolling mountains.

“When I go to the Lost Sierra, it’s like I’ve escaped California altogether. It’s much quieter than Tahoe and it’s bigger, so people are more spread out,” Julie Brown, Welcome to the Lost Sierra

“...with an average of only six people per square mile in the Lost Sierra – compared to Los Angeles County’s 2,138 people per square mile-most likely you and your friends will be the only ones around,”

Homesites and homes showcase stunning mountain, valley and golf course views. Grizzly Ranch is a low-density gated community meticulously orchestrated to complement the region less than an hour from Truckee and Reno.


You'll find no more thoughtfully planned real estate value anywhere else in the Sierra Nevada.
