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.

Super fun trail. Mostly rock and cliff trail - we followed the arrow markers and use them to motivate and power up the hiking energy for the kiddos.

Really fun to walk and scramble on the petrified dunes. The trail traverses the trails and is not always smooth (which makes it fun but can be tricky for those who may be a little unsteady on their feet). The trail is a little tricky to follow in some parts but watch for the upright/skinny signs and the half bowling balls with arrows. Really fun place for photos! The overlook is worth the short extra effort.

Did this quick hike on the way to Zion. Views were stunning, lots of rock to explore, very easy, quick hike if you're pressed for time and want a beautiful view with few people.

This trail is accessed by several parking lots. The larger parking lot is at the picnic area. Easy fun hike to a great viewpoint of Snow Canyon
