This was our favorite thing we did on this trip. Go to the petrified sand dunes and climb around. The views were incredible and we had so much fun.

Snow Canyon State Park is nicely maintained. The ranger at the Visitors' Center is very willing to discuss the various trails and their degree of difficulty. We chose the short and easy path and were rewarded with beautiful views. It was spring so we saw lots of wild flowers and blooming cactus. Do take a water bottle for each hiker... More

We visited here on Dec 30th. It was a cold morning but it was a good time to visit this area. We stopped at the overlook. I was really surprise at the volcanic history of the area. This is a worth while stop if in the area. See picture.

Snow Canyon is extremely interesting in its beauty created from unique rock and sandstone formations and also from the presence of lava flows in southern Utah! The attractions like Jenny's Canyon and Pioneer Names are very close to the roadway so walking is reasonable for older people, but there are also some challenging hikes for the young and daring.

Several people have mentioned that this is a small canyon. We have spent several afternoons in this canyon and feel like there is still more to do! It is a $6.00 fee to get your car in. There is camping on site for a fee (includes the car fee). There are several hiking and biking trails. There is a small... More

Lovely trails to walk as you take in the beauty of the park. The ride back out is when you see the whole picture in a completely different view. The light on the red cliffs at dusk is just awesome. If you want to listen to the sound of stillness this is the place.

The various rock formations of amazing colors are fascinating. Really worth taking some time to read the information available at the visitors booth. Really fun to take the family for a bike ride through the park (much easier riding down than climbing back up, so we try to put a vehicle at either end :).

I hiked over 12 miles through this park & loved every part of it. ( And there are parts I still would like to go back to see!). This park has a reasonable entrance fee that has you go down a long road with multiple stop offs for hiking. As you go through the park the land, rock types, &... More
