Garner Valley - A Magical Mountain Getaway

oh, the magic of Garner Valley . . . a beautiful high mountain valley located in the San Jacinto
Mountains, full of peace, serenity, rolling meadows and mountain vistas.  And best of all, it's just 20 minutes away on Highway 74 from  the world class shops, restaurants and attractions on El Paseo.  Talk about having the best of both worlds!  You can be shopping at Tiffany's and in a blink of an eye, be up in your own private paradise riding a horse and taking in nature's glory.

Garner Valley has a rich history which includes Native American settlement, pioneering ranchers and the site for classic Hollywood westerns.  You're far from the city lights here, and the air is filled with sweet smelling pines and starry skies you can almost touch.

Horse lovers are drawn to Garner Valley, as the land there is surrounded by 250,000 acres of national forest and miles of groomed equestrian trails to ride, hike and mountain bike on.  It's a small and tight-knit community here, where residents  enjoy four distinct seasons and a multitude of outdoor recreational activities.  You can have your privacy up in this enchanted highland, but not feel isolated.

Idyllwild, a  quaint, charming mountain village, is only 12 miles down the road from Garner Valley . . .  with its many special events, hiking, rock climbing, amenities and entertainment.  Just 4 miles down Hwy. 74 from Garner Valley is Lake Hemet, where you can fish, rent boats, and camp.

This lovely community and its nearby towns offer a full calendar of special events and activities, from bike races to art fairs, music celebrations to wine festivals, and much more.  So, whether you are an equestrian looking to have your horse ranch or a lover of nature looking to get away to someplace rustic and peaceful, then Garner Valley is the perfect place for you.
