On a recent trip to St George, we were pleasantly surprised with Snow Canyon and ended up going twice. Although it may lack in grandeur when compared to Zion, it makes up for in diversity. There is a great combination of both red and white sandstone, with a some lava flows and tubes thrown in. The white sandstone amphitheater is... More

We hiked only one trail, but we really enjoyed it. The interpretive signs for features like lava tubes were very helpful. We saw, but did not try, a paved (?) bike path into the canyon. A very well done state park.

We traveled Cedar Breaks, Zion, Bryce and just happened upon Snow Canyon. What a wonderful surprise. It was like dining out at your favorite casual restaurant. It is a small park with a little over 7000 acres. There are opportunities to hike, whatever your level and experience. For those who have the opportunity, equestrain trails are available. We reverted to... More

Just outside St. George, and a different experience from Bryce and Zion National Parks. Within this one park, you can hike on petrified dunes, sandy wash, lava flows, and red rocks - actually you can do all this on one half-day hike! Highly recommend stopping by this park if you are in the area, you won't be disappointed!

I went in the first lava tube with some assistance from my son. You need to take a flashlight or a headlamp. My son went in the next two, the last one was the widest open one. I loved the variety of plants, and was surprised there were flowers at the end of October.

We did 3 short hikes with the family in a single day. The views, especially the diversity of them, is incredible. In the 4 miles we hiked we went through redrock, white rock, Petrified sand dunes and a vast broken lava flow. While not as famous as Moab or Arches, it has great vistas, great trails and a incredibly wide... More

Snow Canyon is a small, state canyon. But it has all the breathtaking beauty of the National Parks in southern Utah. One can take a leisurely stroll or a more strenuous hike through this area. If you visit St. George you definitely need to enjoy this park
