Created in 1851, Nevada County is located in the Sierra Nevada region of California. Its name Nevada is Spanish for "snowy." The county seat is Nevada City and the largest city is Truckee. The county was known for its mineral deposits as it is located in the Mother Lode Country, a historic region in California. It encompasses a total area of 974 square miles. Grass Valley, Alta Sierra, Lake Wildwood, and Washington are other populated areas in the county.

The western portion of the county define the course of several rivers. Martis Creek Lake and Dam stands at the southern end of Nevada County. The Martis Valley, which is largely rural and forested, ranges between 5,800 to 8,600 feet in elevation. The county is a popular weekend getaway for visitors from Greater Sacramento and Northern California. South Yuba River State Park in Nevada City offers outdoor recreation in the form of year-round hiking and gold panning. Major tourist attractions in the county include Empire Mine State Historic Park, Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum, Castle Peak & Donner Pass, and Sugar Bowl Ski Resort.

Interstate 80, for most of its course, runs along the southern border of the county and passes through the town of Truckee. The Truckee-Tahoe Airport, a general aviation facility, provides access to the North Lake Tahoe region. Amtrak's California Zephyr makes a stop in Truckee and Colfax.
