Pine-Valley is a lovely mountain community located approximately 50 miles east of San Diego off Interstate 8. A quiet town with a population of around 1,500, Pine Valley is located within the Cleveland National Forest. Many outdoor recreational opportunities are available, such as hiking, mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, birdwatching and more. It's a great little town to get away from the hustle and bustle of the busy cities - nothing but clean, fresh mountain air and beautiful mountain scenery. Each July, the town is also host to Pine Valley Days, a celebration with a downtown parade, barrel racing, arts & crafts, food, dancing and more fun for the whole family. Pine Valley is near the towns of Alpine and Decanso, and 24 miles east of El Cajon. Just a short drive takes you to all of the famous San Diego beaches and other attractions, such as the San Diego Zoo, Sea World and the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Pine Valley is a good alternative for families who want to experience a different side to southern California in a safe, friendly hometown atmosphere.

Pine Valley Weather & Climate

The mountains and foothills region northeast of San Diego is one of the only places in southern California that enjoys four seasons. At 4000 feet, the elevation, clean air and blue skies add to the overall beauty of the region. Spring is generally mild and wildflowers decorate the backcountry while a profusion of daffodils is evident throughout the small towns of the area. Average summer temperatures fall in the 80s with occasional summer rains July through August. Most of the summer, however, you can expect clear, sunny skies and dry weather. The first cold spell of fall begins a profusion of color as the trees prepare for a winter and the first rains begin in October. Expect lots of rain, gentle snowfalls and cool temperatures November through March.
