Spent most of New Year's Day hiking the park. The Lava Tube Trail, Petrified Dunes Trail and the West Canyon Road walk were all great. Not too crowded. Great vistas and awesome red rock.

This is a beautiful park with many hiking trails through a wide variety geological formations. There is a small campground in the park with flush toilets and showers. The park is near Ivin’s, Utah where there is access to camping supplies and gasoline.

This compact park has scenery to rival most of our national ones and is only about a 10 minute drive from St. George. There are a good number of easily accessed trails, most of which are not very long or difficult. The Petrified Dunes trails...More
