Explore the most popular kid friendly trails in Snow Canyon State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

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.

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.

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

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

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!

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

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.

This was a fun quick trail. Half of the trail was in a river bottom with deep sand which isn’t ideal. The elevation changes throughout the hike made it fun and different. Wouldn’t suggest this trail for trail running.

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.
