  • Snow Canyon is a hidden gem just a short drive out of St. George, Utah. The park features red and white sandstone rock formations, lava tubes, petrified sand dunes, and slot canyons. The trails are ve...  more »
  • This Utah State Park is a real treasure! It has beautiful “red rock” scenery, nice hiking trails (two with dogs allowed), and it is a nice place for a bicycle ride. This park is not as well known as t...  more »
  • Located just north of downtown St. George, UT. We were in the state to take in the Mighty 5 national parks, but this little state park is also worth seeing. The petrified sand dunes were really amazin...  more »

  • Hidden gem! While the crowd is all at Zion, bumper to bumper, there is plenty of room at Snow Canyon. Camping is tight if you want water and electric, very spacious otherwise. It was already starting to get hot (late May) so next time I am thinking Fall or Spring. Nice hikes too! And lots of bike paths, can ride all the way into St George if you are up to it (I'm not). Dogs are only permitted on one trail, really my only complaint. But owners need to be responsible, or they ruin it for the rest of us.
  • The sight was beautiful and the hike we did was breathtaking. It was more of a challenge but well worth the view and the beauty. The only thing i didn't like about snow canyon was if you go straight on the road and don't turn in there isn't a booth showing you have to pay for hikes. There is signs at the beginning of the trails saying that there pay areas. Easy to miss. We went straight instead of turning in and parked at this hike we were planning on doing and the younger of us started it but then one of the older ones came and got us and told us it's a pay hike. So we turned around and went back to the cars, we didn't make it very far so we thought it would be fine. The forest ranger was already there writing down every ones license plates so he could mail out tickets one of the guys in our group told him that we hadn't done the hike but he didn't care to listen. Wish i had gotten his name so i could report him. He told us where we had to go to pay and sure enough there was a booth. So we ended up going over there to do the hike instead to make it with it. But if he hadn't written down our license plate we probably wouldn't have done the pay hikes. There was no one manning the pay booth so we had to pay cash and i accidentally put both receipt and envelope in there pay tube so i hope i don't get the ticket anyway.
  • Awesome place for some fun hiking and some lava tube exploration. Beautiful views! A great spot to go too if you want to squeeze in a quick day hike and can't get to one of the local National Parks.
  • Amazing views! Great hikes for all levels! The lava caves were awesome to see. We spent an afternoon there and could've spent all day. There was very limited parking though but we went during a busy time
  • Great place to take the kids for a day of hiking and fun. Plenty of bathrooms (not outbuildings) with running water. Most hikes are easy enough for novice hikers and the little ones. We played in the Sand Dunes for hours and the kids loved running all over the Petrified Dunes. I also liked how close everything was to each other. Made it easy to move to different portions of the park without too long of a drive. We will be coming back here often when we are in the St. George area.
