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

There simply are not enough superlatives to describe Snow Canyon State Park. Obviously most reviewers love it. We visited twice and hiked for a couple of hours each time. The $6.00 entry fee is well worth it. Trails run just about everywhere you’d want to go. Some are more difficult and others easy. The scenery is nothing short of spectacular... More

Ran through the canyon with me girlfriend and we both agreed that it was extremely beautiful. I would recommend this if you were passing through the area but not to drive. Walk, run, or bike it.

This park is on Highway 18 close to St. George and Interstate 15, so it's convenient to a good assortment of lodging and restaurants. The park entrance fee is very reasonable at $6/car. You can drive through on the paved Scenic Drive and stop for a few photos in an hour... or park your car at one of the many... More

When in St. George be sure to visit Snow Canyon State Park. There are hiking trails for all abilities with beautiful scenery everywhere. Be sure to take water on your hike. The cost is only $6.00 per vehicle and well worth it. So many hikes that you can go back at least once more.

We came to snow canyon thinking we would spend an hour, we spent the whole afternoon. It is very accessible. Easy to walk from car to top of sandstone ridge in 10 minutes. Fabulous views! I easy footing. Safe for families.

Many lava formations are difficult to access from local roads. The lava rocks, of which there are large flows, in Snow Canyon State Park are easily accessed from the trails. There are also good examples of red rock in the area. There are two trails near the entrance which are deemed moderate in difficulty. the park is fairly small compared... More

Snow Canyon captivates me with the multicolored sandstone formations that change dramatically from the top entrance off highway 18 to the lower bottom exit. The beautiful sansdtone is accented with an ancient lava flow that adds a rich dark magenta color to the canyon floor. A great place to hike, picnic, or camp.

We went to check out this small park just outside St George. Wow! What a gem! Just over 7,000 acres but miles of hiking trails and so many cool features, absolutely stunning. If you are in St George this is so worth the short drive. Camping is available too. Can't say enough about the beauty in this small park -... More

Very hard to beat this place for $6 entrance fee. The sites are beautiful and there are hiking and rock hopping trails all over. There are also climbing areas (I don't climb, so no details on this). For those of you that have done the rock hopping at Joshua Tree, this place is way better in my opinion, The sites... More
