Alpine County Profile


 
About this area:
Alpine County measures approximately 743 square miles. The state of Nevada borders the county to the east; Mono and Tuolumne counties lie to the south; Amador and Calaveras counties border to the west; and El Dorado County meets Alpine’s northern boundary. The main routes in Alpine County are state highways 88, 89, and 4. The county hosts the smallest population of California’s 58 counties, with approximately 1,280 residents in 2004, as estimated by the California Department of Finance. Most of the population is concentrated around a few mountain communities: Markleeville, Woodfords, Bear Valley, and Kirkwood. Residents 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. Since Alpine County has no incorporated cities, most public services are provided by county departments/agencies.
