We were unable to book a campsite so were hung around for most of the day hiking and enjoying the beautiful scenery. This place is right outside St. George and there are luxury housing developments going up all around it's borders so the campsites book FAST. The vistas at this small state park are seriously amazing. There are black, grey,... More

It is a small but mighty state park. The range of colors of rock, variety of landscapes, and plethora of activities and trails made our visit wonderful. They have a wonderful accessible trail for all needs and also connect to a bike path that goes to town. Hiking, walking, biking, horseback riding, there is something for everyone.

This is on the west side of St. George and is just outside town. Hiking trails are as short as 0.5 miles up to 8 miles. We selected a 2 mile hike on Butterfly Trail and ended up at the Lava Flow Trail. A variation of sand and rock guides your path with well placed trail markers makes the hike... More

This is a fascinating place so close to St.George, that it must be included in what you want to see.....there are many hiking trails. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and definitely plan to return for more hiking! Very, very beautiful!

We took a walk through the Canyon with our Road Scholar geologist to witness the rock layering as well and some ancient Indian petroglyph. Most of the trail is wheelchair accessible. We cross the road and did a short walk on a path that required walking in sand but was not too difficult

We selected to go to Snow Canyon instead of Zion in the morning as it was raining. Lucky us it was not raining at Snow canyon and we had a great day hiking the dunes and just enjoying the wonderful red rocks and views.

We visited the park twice in two days to hike, take photos, and visit Jake the Snake at the bookstore/visitors center at the campground.

Small in area but big on beauty. Fantastic colors with petrified sand dunes, lava tubes, sandy trails and larger peaks. What a treat. A must see when in the area.
