Been here before. Hiked the sand dunes. Fun fun for kids. Watch out for electronics. The sand is fine and could get in. Also hiked the petrified dunes. Fun slick rock. Don't miss the lava tube caves off the butterfly trail. It is very good. Saw lizards and birds. Saw mouse, snake and deer track.

Wish I had had the time! We had no idea there were caving opportunities and were just out for a short hike when we came upon one of the Lava Flow tunnels. There was a young lady there with her mother who knows the tunnel well and was willing to take us in along with her mom, but we were... More

Wow. Anywhere you look it's just wonderful. Most trails are easy to moderate. All sides of the canyons are spectacular for pictures

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.
