Lucky it rained and packed the sand a bit, as much of it is deep sand making it tough on the incline. Nice views though.

Beautiful day and an easy hike with great views of rock walls!

It was a decent hike. The reason for mediocre scoring is all the sand- hence the name. Once you got out into the canyon area and you could scramble up to the peak past the last pond, it was a blast. But the drudgery of all that sand to and fro means I wouldn’t do it again.

This is more of a moderate hike. Not easy especially with little ones but doable.

It gets hot, limited shade and trail can get difficult to track at times. Pro is this trail is before the entrance of the state park even though they maintain it..no fee.

We started about 1/2 hour before sunset. I think we should have started 45-60 minutes before sunset to get to the end of the trail before dark. We did not quite make it to the end of the trail, but not sure if that matters (since it was dark already by the time we started back, we heard coyotes howling in the distance... glad we did not go any further down!). We saw three 'tubes', I think the last one we saw was the easiest to go down into. Come with a flashlight. The first one you see, is quite a deep pit, which I am not sure you can get down into. We did not go into any of them. I would consider this trail moderate. The way to the end is all going down in elevation, and if you're not used to walking on rocky surfaces, it can slow you down. I felt coming up was easier.

Really nice short hike for complete beginners or to stretch your legs at the end of the day. My wife and I found the plaque inside moving.

This was a great hike, beautiful scenery and going into the lava tubes was something I will never forget.

this is an amazing hike.

the trail is easy but the climb down into the lava was more than my 6 year wanted/could handle.

Best hike with kids in Snow Canyon to date. Fun little side caves, slot-canyon-feel at parts, sand, lava rock, good views. Even sign posts marking vegetation. Would recommend to anyone.

Nice short hike. Park map shows it has slot canyons, but I think that’s a stretch. It’s a steep short hike over rocks at the end. It’s always nice and cool up high, by the red rocks.

Short easy trail. Scrambling up the steep rock to the pioneer names is a blast! There are two points of entry onto the trail. The one where you can see the names from the road is shorter.

I rode my bike on this trail. Depending on the direction you go, it is easier or harder. If you start at the Johnson Canyon trailhead parking area and go north up to the Upper Galoot parking lot through the park, you gain 463 feet according to alltrails. Going back on this same trail, there is only a 49 feet elevation gain. (Time, S to N was 45 min, and N to S only 15 min.) I have both of these as separate recordings in my account here on alltrails. I also rode through the park on the road, which was almost the same challenge up and back, but both with strikingly different views. There is just so much to explore in this park!

I would say if you want to ride bikes on this trail as a family or with people (like me) who may be trying to get back in shape, start at Upper Galoot and go down to Johnson Canyon Trailhead. In case not everyone can go back due to the elevation gain or being tired or too hot (not a lot of shade on the trail, and don't forget water and sunscreen), maybe the strongest biker can bike back (a bit harder to go back in this direction) and shuttle everyone back.

We've done this hike several times and finally thought to bring some headlamps. The caves are nice and cool so if you bring water you will be fine out in the sun. Fun for kids to discover.

This is a quick stop. Take a picture. Continue on type of hike. When I saw images of this I thought it would be awesome but the canyon is very short and that picture is hard to get as it is a popular hike.

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.

Short enough even on a hot day. Bring a flashlight/headlamp for the lava tubes. There are 2 which are 100's of feet long into the ground and out of day light. Our 7 year old was more than able to scramble in and the teen's loved it.

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.

It was totally unlike any hike I’ve ever done. Sorta felt like I was walking on Mars

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.
