City of Colfax Overview

Overview   Government Directory   Digest   Calendar

Address:   33 S Main St, Colfax, CA 95713


As the city’s motto has it, Colfax sits “above the fog, below the snow.” This small town with a population of roughly 2,000, has been a waystation on major transportation routes, from the days of stagecoach travel to the arrival of the Central Pacific Transcontinental Railroad. These days both U.S. Route 40 and Interstate 80 intersect with Colfax, and its historic depot still sees freight train traffic and is a stop on Amtrak’s California Zephyr line.
