|Pine Valley, Utah is a quaint and peaceful valley amidst the central western slopes of the Pine Valley Mountains. At an elevation of 6,500 feet Pine Valley offers cooler summer temperatures and a get-away for many people from St. George, Las Vegas and other desert areas. Thick forests of ponderosa pine cover the area mountains and Pine Valley is great for hiking, horseback riding and more. Camping, lodging, dining and limited shopping are available in the area. The famous landmark of the valley is the Pine Valley Church, which was built by Ebenezer Bryce (namesake of Bryce Canyon). Bryce was experienced in building ships and when asked to construct the church he built it as the hull of a ship, upside down. The construction is unique and very solid.
