Quick hike to see the names after some longer hiking in the park. As someone else said, a bit steep in the area of the names. Quick, easy hike.

We followed the lead of the previous reviewer and traveled in a clockwise fashion. This worked out well for us. Great hike today. Variety of terrain and sights to see. Really enjoyed climbing up and over the petrified dunes and exploring the lava tube. Beautiful scenery.

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 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!

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.

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.

Wanted to do the snow canyon trail, biut didn't see the turnoff from the main trail (there's a trail post at each major turn), so I kept going up the canyon. Beautiful views. The main trail is available for any hiker. Excellent hike!
If you have a Utah State Parks pass you can get closer, or you can pay $6 at the gate, but there is a small parking lot before you get to the park if you want the extra hike.

Fantastic to see so many of trails in Snow Canyon. It's perfect during the mid day morning in Spring. The 3ish miles give you a taste of slick rock, uneven rocks, red sand and even fun to see bunnies, butterflies and wildflowers. My wedding was at the Overlook so hike up there to see it for yourself if you want to. Enjoy!

The hike in to Snow Canyon is easy to moderate - a lot of natural rock stairs at parts. Worth the hike to get such great views of Snow Canyon, though. And good views of the Pine Valley mountains on the way back to the trailhead.

Quick little hike to some old pioneer names

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.
