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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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

Wonderful experience! The hike getting to the Lava Tubes is easy to follow. It’s exciting being able to explore the tubes. Bring a flashlight and don’t be afraid to get some dirt on you. There are three tubes that you can explore.

It’s an easy trail with a beautiful view. It’s amazing to see the arch and the beauty of the looming mountain faces. Worth doing! Wonderful hike when you only have limited tine to hike.

Great , fairly easy trail that gives great scenery and nice Canyon. Take Scout Cave trail in way back to make an afternoon out of it.

Easy flat trail, cool arch!

Nice hike. The lava tube was really cool! It's a tight fit in some spots. You will definitely need lighting, as it is pitch black inside the tube. We used miner's type lighting so that our hands were free. You can go quite a ways in the tube. It eventually stops so there is no way of getting lost.

Such a fun trail! Great for the kids. Loved the interesting facts posted on information markers near the lava tubes and fields. There was a moderate amount of traffic but the closer we got to the overlook, the fewer people we came across. Looking forward to visiting again to explore the tubes a bit more.

The arch is cool. Short and sweet. Saw a toad.

Awesome trial! Tube entrances were amazing can't wait to go back and explore again soon!

This trail is definitely an easy one full of different tubes to climb into an explore.

Nice little trail with varied terrain. Took a 2 year old and he had fun climbing on the rocks and playing in the sand at the end of the canyon. Not a strenuous hike and not high adventure, but great for families with kids looking for a nice little hike.

Great views from the top!

The hike should be rated as easy. Lava tube was very unique!

The hike is actually easy, not moderate. It is mostly walking through sagebrush until you get to the lava caves and some fun rock formations to climb on.

Great trail. Lots of rocks and sand. Great views and very little traffic

Love going down inside the huge lava tube about 3/4 a mile in
