Mountain Gem Between to Metro Areas
Tehachapi is a Mountain Community in the southern part of the Sierra Nevada between the Central Valley (Bakersfield) and the Antelope Valley (Mojave, Palmdale, Lancaster). The elevation is 4000 ft. We have summers that are not too hot, 75-90 degrees F average, over 100 Fahrenheit only with an occasional heat wave, or during the drought.
