West Point and Surrounding Towns

This collection of small quaint townships in the rural section of central-northern Calaveras County is sometimes referred to by locals as The Blue Mountain region.

These towns are rich in Native American, gold-mining and timber history, and are enhanced with historic structures. The people of the region prize the rural environment typified by peace and quiet, clean air, low population density, diversity of landscape, and lots of open space. This is true rural life without much development planned other than the growth of regional parks. Most inhabitants want to retain a place that values self-reliance, self-sufficiency and independence.  With that said, Volcano Telephone Company offers high speed fiber optic in some areas of this region giving many telecommuters and small businesses an opportunity to move from the high density population areas to take advantage of this high-speed internet capability and to escape the congestion of urban living.  Are you next?

The landscape is comprised of heavily timbered foothills and low-elevation mountains that are interspersed with steep river gorges. Frequently, the area is graced with beautiful sunlit valleys and meadows. Spring and fall are particularly beautiful seasons.

Some of the colorfully-named townships in this section of Calaveras County include Railroad Flat, Glencoe, Wilseyville and West Point.  One can see a large buffalo herd, raging river forks and properties with attractive ponds and old barns all within a short drive. The region has some retail activity like convenience stores and small grocers but big box shopping, variety of restaurants and entertainment other than the outdoor variety can be found within 30-40 minutes.

Real Estate offerings in this area range from modest miner's cabins to sprawling luxury ranches and everything in between.
