  • Red stone, white stone, dunes, lava fields - this park has quite a variety of landscapes. We spent the morning here before heading back to Vegas for our flight home. It was a perfect end to our vacati...  read more »
  • St George has done a great job investing in bike paths. The Snow Canyon loop is superb, and the bike path makes riding from St George stress free. The climb up through the canyon is beautiful, with li...  read more »

  • Love Snow Canyon! There are fun things are young and old including lava tubes, hikes, and climbing. The campsites are well kept and nicely placed. This is my favorite place to stay in St. George. Be sure to check out Bloomington Cave!
  • My wife and I went to Utah for a mountain biking vacation from Ohio and decided to spend an afternoon/evening at Snow Canyon. We couldn't get over how beautiful this place was with the liquid looking rock and couldn't believe that no one was in the park! We walked for miles, took amazing pictures, and how a wonderfully peaceful/absolutely quite time. This place made us feel that we were days from civilization, it was so peaceful. I would love to go back to this place and spend the day hiking around maybe even climbing down into the old lava tubes. If you are in this part of Utah and love the beauty of strange rock formations, I highly suggest sopping through Snow Canyon for a few hours, you won't regret it!
  • Snow Canyon is an amazing place to visit. You can choose long hikes or short walks just a few yards from the parking lot. The roads are beautifully maintained and the sights are breath taking. It's also within a few miles of Tuacon theater company. It makes for a great trip.
  • Beautiful place. Wish trails were marked better. Wasn't sure which lava tubes were safe to explore or how to enter. Do NOT try the cinder cone hike. Not worth it. It isn't marked well and part of the trail goes onto private property. There is a gate that says "DANGEROUS ANIMALS PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK" then the trail continues and says "PLEASE CLOSE GATE" so apparently that is the right way. The dangerous animals are longhorns! And they come very close to the trail! The trail absolutely needs to be moved to avoid the longhorn pasture. The view from the top of the cinder cone is gorgeous! It is such a shame the trail is so poorly marked and is shared with longhorns.
  • Cool place. Entry fee is nominal and there are some really great hikes and rock formations to see. We went on 3 separate hikes totaling 5 miles which was great with the kids. Plenty of time to rest and eat and play and hike without killing them on one really long hike. Fun place. We will be back for sure.
