As rural as it gets. Still only one blinking stop light in town. A few grocery markets and gas stations, restaurants, banks, and businesses serve this cattle country town. The historic courthouse and the Niles Hotel are the highlights to town. Jess Valley, Mill Creek Falls and Blue Lake are both worth a visit, south of town US 395.
