This hike gave us a lot of different scenery through the park. Petrified dunes was awesome however we lost the trail at one point because the markers are too far apart. Still an amazing hike

Amazing view and rocks

We took the petrified dunes and red sand trails in to the canyon, which is a fairly arduous and hot path but clearly marked and padre canyon is beautiful - well worth the trek in. There was no one around and we found many opportunities to scramble and climb the mountains to the left of the canyon. The actual trailhead is immediately to right (easy to walk past) but even if you miss the trail there's still plenty to explore. Make sure you bring lots of water - it gets very hot and once you get in you'll want to keep going.

We did this trail after a very long day of hiking and it was the perfect way to end. As said, the hike is fairly easy, but the lava tubes are spectacular. At the end of the butterfly trail, the path splits into two if you go left you'll hit a massive lava tube that you can explore easily (with flashlights) to the right is a smaller tube, if you're little you can still crawl in a ways, but cool to look at regardless.

A great end to the day!

We did most of this route, it offers a diverse landscape of canyons, sands, and caves! Maybe start with Petrified Dunes (go clockwise) so you get the most strenuous climb out of the way and then you can end with the lava tubes which are cool (both literally and qualitatively). Make sure you bring a flashlight for the tubes.

A fun trail all in all!

This trail is a blast! Well marked, lots of elevation change and pretty views, as well as many opportunities for scrambling and going off the path. Not too long but connects to many other great trails. Look out for the overlook (just off this trail) - provides stunning views and a fun little climb.

Remember to bring lots of water - there's very little coverage and there are strenuous bits.

Once you get back past the Tuachan bldgs it’s lovely. Wild flowers are blooming

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.

The hike itself was okay, but the lava tube was AMAZING! We will definitely be back again—next time with headlamps!
When you get to the T in the trail, the lava tube is 100 meters down the left fork of the Lava Tube Trail.

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 love this hike. It’s a regular for us. It’s beautiful. But it’s really popular so arrive early. We got in at 7:30 am and had the whole trail to ourselves. By the time we left the little parking lot was full.

I didn't go on any trails. Started at the North entrance and hiked through all the rocks and everything to the South entrance. Loved it.

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 with so many different landscapes. Petrified dunes section was amazing!

The views could not be better. The first mile and a half is forgettable but after that was enjoyable, fun, and soul inspiring. First part is mostly rock and dirt, then dirt and sand, then slip rock, and then mostly sand to the overview of Ivins and the lower Snow Canyon. If you plan on doing an out and back be in good shape or make sure you have plenty of time, probably both! In my case, I planned on it but ran out of time and would have been dragging by the time I got back.

Great trail one day is not enough to explore everything.

Beautiful scenery!

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.

Great birding yesterday! Saw 11 different birds.

Easy hike with gorgeous slot canyon!

Loved it! Easy and peaceful with beautiful views.

Easy hike with amazing views. Going into the lava tubes is cool but climbing on top of a cool rock structure was probably my favorite though. The view was amazing!

More of a stroll than a hike. Very very short. Worth the few minutes of walking though!

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

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