This is a beautiful drive with numerous trails rated by level of difficulty, paved bike trails, a campground and facilities. We stopped to watch several rock climbers along the way. When we reached the exit, we kept going and made the circle south back to St George. It's a great option to doubling back through the park.

A scenic drive along the sandstone canyon floor offers stunning geological features and a vast menu of hiking trails for all skill levels. Observe nature at work: ossified sand dunes, lava flows, cinder cones and erosion all working together to show off nature's grander. Picnic table are easy to find as are pull offs for photo opportunities.

Some National Parks are so big that you need to take a few days just to get through it. Snow Canyon is fairly small in comparison. It costs $6.00 to get in for an all day pass. You can go find an easy hiking trail and spend an hour in the park or you can find more advanced hikes and... More

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
