Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of California's counties, including San Bernardino, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Hesperia.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Hesperia - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (442) is an overlay for area code (760).

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Hesperia or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Hesperia) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Hesperia. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Hesperia

While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
