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.

Great views of lava rock, flowers, caves and mountains. Not much shade and very hot in the summer.

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.

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 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.

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.

Perfect if you have littles. Short, beautiful, and young kids love exploring the little slot canyon. Plus if you go in the summer, the little canyon is completely shaded so you get a little break from the sun.

Easy way to see a slot canyon if you don’t have time for a big trek. Can be in and out in 10 min!

Very pretty, well marked trail even for beginners like us it was great!!

Great adventure for families, and anyone wanting a short hike it’s a sun break. The lave tube were fun and nice cool break from the sun. We climbed down in them and the kids loved it.

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

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!

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.
