Yucca Valley lies in the Little San Bernardino Mountains at an elevation of 3,300 feet. Crisp air, starry skies and the incomparable beauty of the high desert help to create its unique charm and friendly atmosphere.
Yucca Valley is conveniently situated on CA State Highway 62, intersected by State Highway 247 and easily accessible to all of Southern California.
As the gateway to the Joshua Tree National Park and the economic hub of the Morongo basin, Yucca Valley is renowned for its outdoor recreational opportunities, regional attractions, and will this year inaugurate the Yucca Valley Film Festival.
From the days of the Wild West to incorporation in 1991 and well into the 21st Century, Yucca Valley has experienced significant growth, but retained its rich Western heritage. Today, residents, businesses and visitors alike find Yucca Valley a highly rewarding place to live, work and play.
Public education in Yucca Valley is under the administration of the Morongo Unified School District. Yucca Valley has three neighborhood elementary schools (Onaga Elementary, Yucca Mesa Elementary, and Yucca Valley [Hope] Elementary), one middle school (La Contenta Middle School), and two high schools (Yucca Valley High School and Black Rock Continuation High School).

Adult tutoring is also available in Yucca Valley, with tutoring information available at the Yucca Valley Public Library.
Yucca Valley has two major means of highway access; California State Route 62 (Twentynine Palms Highway) runs east-west and is the main thoroughfare through town and terminates at the south end at Interstate 10 and Parker Dam on the Arizona border at the east end.

GEOGRAPHY AND TERRAIN
Yucca Valley lies in the middle of the Morongo Basin at a base elevation of 3,300 feet. Joshua Tree National Park is adjacent to its southern border.Inland Empire storm tries to enter the High Desert‘s Yucca Valley, but is held back by the San Bernardino Mountains
According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 40.0 square miles (104 km2). 40.0 square miles (104 km2) of it is land and none of it is covered in water. Yucca Valley is located north of the Joshua Tree National Park, while the Little San Bernardino Mountains and many hills cover a large percentage of city area.
This High Desert community has an elevation (city hall) at 3,224 feet (983 m) above sea level. Snowfall occurs almost annually whenever the snow level drops to elevations under 4,000 feet (1,200 m). The area’s terrain is prone to wildfires (such as the Pioneertown fire in July 2006), resulting from plant growth during the rainy seasons and flash floods. The plants within the town and among the chaparral in the mountains outside of the San Bernardino National Forest wilt and perish from the summer heat, providing ample fuel during a fire.
Yucca Valley has experienced high levels of seismic activity. Fault lines criss-cross the town and the Morongo basin.

Norman J. Essig was a key player in the late 1950s in working toward establishing Yucca Valley as a place for entertainment celebrities to come and live in privacy. He personally acquired hundreds of acres of land during this time and owned and ran Glenn Realty. He helped to put in the main roads that are running throughout the town off of Hwy 62. He was personal friends with Jimmy Van Heusen the composer and gave him prime real estate in Yucca Valley to build his house which can still be seen atop the highest hill in the center of the town. He is survived by two daughters and seven grandchildren.
