The Pine Valley Ranger District is known for its distinctive vegetation, ranging from Pinyon/Juniper to Engelmann Spruce forests. It is also known for its most prominent feature, the Pine Valley laccolith. The laccolith, which is an intrusive rock outcrop, is the largest of its kind in the United States. The laccolith makes up the Pine Valley Mountains which are a federally designated wilderness area. The unique geologic features of the district provide for some great recreation opportunities.
