Pine Valley is a tiny community in the Pine Valley Mountains in north central Washington County. These mountains rise from the desert to dense pine and aspen forests. This area is a respite from the hot dry desert terrain of the region. This is a wonderful place to hike, horseback ride, fish and camp.
Within this small, rural community you can find the historic Pine Valley Church, of interest for the fact that it is essentially an upside down ship. A popular attraction close by is the colossal Pine Valley Laccolith. Formed long ago by the heavy pressure of magma, it is an alien seeming dome-like rock.You can explore the area driving the scenic byways or hiking trails plus there are plenty of opportunities for horseback riding, biking and looking out for wildlife like the deer who often are seen wandering in these mountains. Nearby Zion National Park is a must see with plenty of guides and tours for biking, hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. The landscape here is inspiring. Down in the canyon a river flows through cottonwoods and along the wooded trails, sometimes forming springs and pools.
Spring means flowers and blooming trees plus wildlife may be more active. It's a lovely time of year to visit and be out in nature.
