We did Johnson Trail and another walk through RMR. One of the girls at the resort is a big runner and says there is a run here in... More

After being in Zion National Park one day, and Snow Canyon the next, two of us agreed that Snow Canyon should not be missed. The colors and variations are as vivid and varied as Zion and there are lots of interesting hiking trails that allow you to get up close to the geological features. Jenny's Canyon - a slot canyon-...

We went here with our 6 & 9 year old sons. Could spend a few days hiking all the trails. Very cool rocks you can climb and hike on. Caves you can climb in. You need to brink flashlights! people rock climbing. Outdoor lovers Mecca. Sand dunes to play on. Fun place

If you are visiting the Southern Utah area and you are a little tired of the massive amounts of tourists at Zion or Bryce, go 15 minutes outside of St. George and pay 5 dollars to visit Snow Canyon State Park. It is small, but extremely diverse from red rocks to white rocks to black rocks to sand dunes and... More

Short drive from St George, Snow Canyon offers multiple trails. Nothing too strenuous or steep if hiking with children. You will see old rock formations, including petroglyphs & natural lava tube formations. Not overly crowded, so a plus for those who just want to get away for some quiet time.

Snow Canyon is a hidden treasure in the south-west corner of Utah. This park has it all and should be a national park if it was in any other state.

Visitors center was very helpful in figuring out which trails the kids would enjoy the most and what sites would be most interesting. Junior Ranger program was fun for kids as well.

We broke our journey in Snow Canyon State Park. It's an interesting place that's only 10 minutes or so off of the main highway. We drove around in 2 hours or slightly under. You could go quicker or you could spend longer by getting out the car and walking more frequently than we did - it was seriously hot whilst... More

One can drive or cycle through this park . . . and take many side trails, some pedestrians and bikes share, some pedestrian only. The canyon is not deep, but the geology is striking, ranging from red, pink, yellow, grey and brown sandstone, to a section with volcanic overflow rocks. There is at least one small, easily accessible, short but... More
