Mountain beavers inhabit forestlands along the Pacific Coast of North America, from sea level to as high as 7,000 ft (2,000 m) in subalpine forests. They range south from 50°N in southwestern British Columbia through western Washington and Oregon to northern California where inland they extend further south to 36°40'N along the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Two disjunct populations occur on the coast of California north of San Francisco Bay.
