Less travelled red rock and volcanic rock state park with few visitors. Numerous and varied hiking trails from easy to strenuous. A nice respite from the crowds of Zion and Bryce with just as nice scenery and facilities. A must see if in St George. We only had two hours to spare in this park. Could have stayed here an... More

We weren't planning on visiting Snow Canyon State Park until receiving a recommendation from another traveler in Zion National Park. Late one afternoon we visited and were not disappointed. Many small trails and nice vista points. We only visited one other State park (Kodachrome) and in our opinion Snow Canyon was more enjoyable.

It is an excellent park. I rated it as "average", because i live in Sedona and also, I was multiple times to the Bryce, Kodachrome and Grand Canyon etc. before. However, it is a very nice spot. Shorter hikes. Not tough, not any uphills, if you do not want to. You will see a mixture of the red rocks, sand... More

A beautiful place to hike and visit! I hike the West Canyon Trail three times. You can go as far as four miles each way, or only go part of the way. I am a beginner hiker, but was able to hike the trail. There is a bathroom at the start of the trail, and another 1.25 mile up the... More

This place is beautiful. We rode our bikes on the trail. Some parts were easy and some difficult because of the incline. There are some good trails for the kids where they can climb some of the red rocks. However, some of the less traveled paths were a little confusing to navigate. Also, bring lots of water!!!'

The petrified sand dunes were amazing to climb. The lava tunnels were fun to explore. Pioneer trail was fun to climb.

It is certainly not the Grand Canyon, but it is very beautiful to look at. A combination of red and white rock. There is a $6 fee to enter per vehicle. Take advantage of the roadside view if you can. Unfortunately for us ( congratulations for them) the place was reserved for a wedding, so I was only able to... More

This state park costs only $6 for a day pass and has an extensive trail system that can be an incredible adventure. We've seen rabbits, lizards, snakes and roadrunners in this park. The transition from red to white rock is quite striking and worth driving or walking to see. Give yourselves and early morning start to miss the heat of... More

VISITORS CENTER(6/10): Very small but a good central place to stop, refill your water bottle and use the restrooms. HIDDEN PINION (?/10): The trail was not well marked. We started down the... More
