We were so glad to come across this state park while in Utah. It was inexpensive to visit, was not too busy, and offered a variety of hikes and diverse landscape. Would be a great place to bring a family for a fun day outside!

The Snow Canyon park is amazing. You have many trails of different level. It really doesn't matter which one you take you will see beauty. The contrast in color and the view are speechless. If you are a group of visitor with different level I suggest you hike the Butterfly and the Lava Flow together. Have lunch at the top... More

If you've visited Arches, Zion or Bryce Canyon - you will be surprised this canyon isn't a National Park. The magnificence is on par with all of them. What I liked the most is the ability for my entire family to safely wander over boulders and step-stone hillsides. I also liked that you can go for 20 minutes or two... More

Snow Canyon State Park is a beautiful park minutes from St. George. We hiked a few short trails on a Sunday in February and they were not crowded. There are a number of trails in the park ranging from short and easy to longer and more strenuous. Near the middle of the park there is a nice picnic area that... More

I had some locals give me a recommendation to go to the white rocks area. It was a great view over snow canyon and found a small damned area that pioneers built to water their cattle at the bottom of some white domes. It was awesome.

This is a great park for getting out and hiking. There are several trails, some are long and some are shorter. It is a little hot to go in the summer but depending on the weather it is a great shoulder season or winter area. There is a campground but the RV sites are too tight to even put out... More

Lots of hiking trails and grand red rock formations. Loop trails, vista points, rock climbing areas and much more. The lava tubes are fun if you're into that type of entertainment. Great time to explore would be in the spring time before it gets to hot. You can access the canyon either from Santa Clara or going north on route... More

A really spectacular small State Park. Very unusual lava flow influenced rock formations. Tons of easy hiking, and such an unusual contrast between colors, and rock formations. A really fantastic little Park to go to for a drive-through, or multiple hikes. You really don't want to miss this. Most people do miss it, because it's rarely crowded.

We went for our family reunion and did a couple short hikes that were just perfect for the young kids and the older folks. Snow Canyon is beautiful and less crowded than the nearby National Parks. We really liked the sand dunes and Jenny's Canyon. Definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the St. George area.

Very close to city of St. George - easy beautiful drive. We had snow in Snow Canyon on Christmas day - so fun! Plenty of trails and places to climb some red rocks.
