A 13.4 mile steady assent from Interstate 15 through NW St. George, Utah yields a provocative scenic tour past opulent gated communities and arid desert landscapes. Once inside the park, the view shifts to terracotta colored sandstone mounds and cacti laden footpaths. Referred to by some as the "other" park (Zion is a National Park located some 40 miles West...

We visited St. George, UT, with grand plans of visiting all the big parks, zion, bryce, escalante, but elevation sickness became our enemy. And each day someone else in our family felt ill, so we went to Snow Canyon, and what a great place, a small slot canyon, lava fields, white mountains, lava caves that you can go thru, bring...

This is a great park that is a quick drive off Interstate 15, so it is an easy stop on a trip through the area. The park has two entrances, one of which is near a higher end residential area. This park is a blend of Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas (the neighborhood nearby is very similar to Summerlin)... More

Petrified sand dunes, lava tubes, volcano cones, red sand and tall sandstone peaks makes this park a must see

Only had a short time to drive through here, but these red mountains (and black and white ones, too) are absolutely breathtaking! A highlight of our Nevada trip!!!

This is a state park very close to an urban center that has tremendous scenery and landforms. We took many photos of the unusual combination of vegetation and landforms. Nice accommodations for people visiting the park.

Amazing textured rock formations and colors.. all levels of hiking trails, in my opinion, preferable to Zion as it's more accessible and no crowds of tourists. Outstandingly beautiful!

A very nice small park. It had great little hikes and longer hikes. Wear good shoes and bring lots of water. Best to go first thing in the morning in the summer because it gets HOT!! We liked Jenny's Canyon and the petrified sand dunes.

Spent the last day of our vacation hiking here after visiting the south and north rims Grand Canyon, glen canyon, lake Powell, Bryce, and Zion. We all (kids 10, 13, 14) loved our day here. We started at the visitor center ("bookstore" at the campground) and asked about hikes, etc. Jordan (asst park ranger/director) was fantastic and helpful. He took... More

Did a couple of easy hikes here. "Lava Tube" trail and "Three Ponds" and almost had the place to myself. Okay it was a hot July day, but get there by 7 am and you can see a lot before it gets too hot. Of the two trails Lava Tube was easier to find your way but Three Ponds was... More
