Love Snow Canyon!

I go to Snow Canyon pretty much every time I'm in St. George. Great hikes, beautiful scenery, and fun sand dunes.

there are several really easy hikes for kids, but many many hikes overall. Our favorites were Jenny's Canyon, as it is a slot canyon that is only a 1/4 mile in, and the sand dunes. Miles of sand to play and roll on. Our kids absolutely loved it! Seeing the pioneer names was cool too on that hike, but be... More

This was our first adventure on a week-long hiking trip in Utah. I'm glad we started here to acclimate to the desert and the views. We were in awe at the rocks and formations, and loved hiking the park. We explored a few trails, including Pioneer names. It was a great way to spend the morning walking the canyon and... More

Snow Canyon State Park is easily accessed from St. George and offers a large selection of hikes perfect for any age. This was our toddlers' first visit to the State Park and they especially loved exploring up Jenny Canyon and the surrounding area. We are excited to come back this coming Spring!

Really cool area, reminds me alot of other utah areas like moab. All hikes are right off the main road, which can be toured in a matter of minutes. Most places are great for kids. Jenny's Canyon very short hike and cool small slot canyon. The petrified dunes are deceptively large and you can spend hours exploring the cracks and... More

The sand dunes are not open to atvs or cars so it's safe to bring the kids here to play. Lava tubes are fun to hike around, esp. If you have older kids. Great day for the whole family.

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.
