Zion is one of my favorite places in Utah but sometimes when visiting St George you need to do something different. Snow canyon is maybe a one day, once only thing but there is some fun hikes. We took our girls to this arch right as the sun was coming down and had beautiful red colors going in, and a nice cool shadow to enjoy the last part of the hike. Not a hike to write home about but a nice walk with the kids.

The Trail is closed till September unless you have a guide.

great little in and out Trail especially for families with smaller children. Relatively flat and well-marked Trail. short and sweet but not much shade

It was Really easy going out to the cave but the trail was harder to follow back. We ended up having to bushwhack in order to get back to the trail.

Does have a few rough steep spots but even my 5 and 3 year old were able to make it to the top with a little bit of help on the slippery areas. They loved being in the volcano and the view is great from the top.

Th perfect hike or those with small children. Once you get to the amphitheater kids love exploring the rocks and playing in the sand. If you go in the summer the sand can get very hot so make sure to go earlier in the day so the kids can still play. So many cool places to take pictures.

Nice morning hike. The trail is not easy. Also, the trail is not very well mark in some areas.

Closed for summer 2018. We didn’t get to do it.

Decent trail for hiking. Somewhat of a rough trail as you come to the top. I actually did some trail running on this trail. Great for hill training. Awesome views of Snow Canyon.

Beautiful trail with lots of sandstone to climb on. We started here and then headed toward Butterfly trail and got to experience so many different kinds of terrain from sand to volcano tubes there was not one bad place for a picture; just stunning.

This is a great hike for beginning to intermediate hikers. Though rated "easy" the stairs and climb at the end up to the cave is a steep slog. So be prepared with plenty of water. The walk through the cottonwoods is beautiful. The lava rock formations along the way make for some great scenery. It's a full 2 miles to the cave and 2 miles back, though the app lists it a little shorter.

The kids absolutely loved hiking around and playing in the sand. My senior parents were able to make the short trek with us, and sat watching the grandkids play. We will definitely be back!

We went left at the fork. Easy, short walk to the overlook. The white rocks are beautifully contrasted by the red rocks in the distance. Parts of the trail are a bit sandy.

Great hike! A couple of challenging areas but worth the view!

Very easy to get to the amphitheater. Lots of exploring can be done once there so the difficulty depends on you!

First mile is solid. A lot of the Trail is on sand, fits the name. The pools had water so good finish to the trail prior to heading back.

The cave is awesome! Kids loved seeing lizards and birds.

Loved it! Easy and peaceful with beautiful views.

Nice fun hike. There’s some pretty views along the way and the cave is beautiful. It’s good night hike because the view of the city lights is stunning. Good trail run!

Epic.. I’ve yet to find a more peaceful hike!!

This trail does NOT allow dogs, despite the AllTrails description.

Cool hike, it is an old volcano. Surrounded by a large lava field for exploring also. I had a really good time on this hike as it is very unique and reminded me of Hawaii. Watch out! It is very steep with lots of loose rock I sled down in a couple of spots.

Short hike but a nice trip inside the White Rocks section of Snow Canyon. Once in the belly of the amphitheater, I was intrigued to see if I could get my 280 lbs up the rough, chunky rocks to the pimple dome visible from the road. Thankfully, it’s not all fat and I discovered that scrambling is now my favorite mountain-scape activity. Once I was confident I could retrace my steps down, if necessary, I climbed my way to the top, using the elephant-hide texture to cement my hand holds and steps. The dome sits about 4500’ up, so a modest 300-400’ scramble up from the amphitheater floor but well worth it. Beautiful views into the rest of Snow Canyon and the surrounding peaks. Coming down was challenging, having to hug a couple of edges and correct course but I couldn’t help but let out a holler after getting back to the bottom, simply because it was so incredibly fun. If you’re adventurous and minimalist, throwing down a bag at the top for the night would be a star-gazers paradise, as there are a few small oasis of flat ground with built-up sand and soil.
