  • This canyon is a State Park that is a short drive from St George, Utah. I had a little bit of time before work, so I made the drive out and picked a short hike. The hikes all appeared to be easy, and parking was close by the trail head. The area was not crowded, but even in October in the early morning it was HOT...bring water and good shoes. There were several options for trails, and they all seemed to have spectacular views of the canyon and surrounding rock formations. The fee to enter the park was nominal, and the provided maps appeared accurate. This location was recommended to me by locals who try and avoid the crowds of Zion National Park.
  • Similar to Red Rock but much more majestic because the mountains surrounding the red rocks and the scenery overall. About a 4 mile drive off the 18, less than an hour from St. George. I highly recommend it! For $6 a day, this is by far one of the best State Parks around!
  • Snow Canyon rivals Zion for it's beauty! It's a must-see if you're in St George. For small children, the sand dunes are super fun, and there's a restroom there. The nearby Jenny's Canyon is open seasonally and offers an amazing, very short hike for small children. The very hardest hike is Cinder Cone, due to scrambling up a steep slope with loose, sharp lava rocks - not for small kids! We've been on most of the other hikes, which each offer a different beautiful adventure for adults and kids who are old enough to climb over rocks and manage an uneven rocky trail.
  • Very cool state park. Really displays the variety of terrain types in southwestern Utah in a pretty small area. Very easy access to the park from the main road with lots of parking to get out and explore the various sections and offerings. Very cool dunes part, which is great for families with children specifically, although it can be crowded because of that on popular days off.
  • One of my absolute favorite places to take pictures! The park is stunning + the kids love running around. The hikes are fun and there are so many the kids can join you on! We love visiting often!
