Snow Canyon is a 3.5 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near St George, UT that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from October until April.
This self-guided nature trail highlights geological features and native plants of the park. This loop covers parts of 3 different trails and a dirt road. If you like stay in the campground and cover all the different trails over a couple of days or try this one to get great views of the area. Start at the Hidden Pinyon trailhead on the west side of the road, take the paved whiptail trail about 30 yards and turn west onto the HP trail which is also signed for Three Ponds trail. Take this trail until you reach a junction and keep left, if you go right this is part of the TP trail and will go back to the campground and visitor center. On the HP trail you will come to another junction where you will turn and go northeast across the petrified dunes. Then you come to the Butterfly trail where you will turn west and follow to a trail junction to an overlook point go up to the overlook to see some beautiful views then back down and go west north west on the trail until you meet up with west canyon road. At this point turn southeast and follow the road past a utility box on the right and an outhouse on the left then an abandoned road on the left and you will then cross the TP trail, turn left onto this trail and follow back to the petrified dunes and back down to the HP trail and back to the road and your finished. This was a great hike and crossed much of the trail areas.
Great scenic views
Great family trail! Lots of adjacent slick rock for scrambling, so it can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be. We take our kids on this trail often.
This is a great nature trail for the family. there is enough natural elements and geography for the adults and enough terrain texture for the kids. The kids will enjoy the sand, lava rock, and the occasional sandstone scamper.
An easy, beautiful hike that shows off some of Snow Canyon's most beautiful sights.
Great to get out so easily from St. George. Gets busy as the weather warms up.
Amazing views, and a really fun little trail. Definitely worth a redo and great for kids!
Jan 1 2015 - NEW YEARS DAY HIKE with my honey- Emilio 2 hours
Dec 31, 2014 - 2 hours with Leslie - my new friend!
short, moderate hike with just a few rocky spots. stunning views and lots of picture opportunities.
Beautiful rock formations surround this short hike. It would be great for kids as there are 19 markers along the way, each noting a different type of vegetation. I learned a couple of things, too! The trail is well marked and easy to follow. Quite enjoyable.
Great but short hike. Lots of cool views.
