Nice, short hike. Good for all ages. Beautiful views. It was fun in the white sand. We took our shoes off and walked through it. Kind of fun!

This is more or less an easy walk, especially when starting the trail from the trailhead that starts off route 18 (not inside the park). The trail starts in the sandy desert, and then leads up some slick rock into the ampitheatre. It was well marked when we were there, and the all trails map was a perfect guide. The only thing to keep in mind is if it is windy, the wind will be more intense inside the ampitheatre (where the trail ends). We got in there and it was so windy! Sand hitting us from all sides. Luckily the wind was not strong enough to blow us over, but it was hard to see because sand would blow in your eyes. Also another note, the parking lot exit has a high angle to the road, so take a wide turn to get out. I kinda scraped the bottom of our Volvo because I did not take a wide turn :(.

This is an awesome hike for kids. The amphitheater is full of really fine sand that my kids loved playing in. If you hike to to top of the mountain to the south of the amphitheater you will get an awesome view of the red cliffs in Snow Canyon.

Great little hike for the kids. A fun bit of scrambling on the white sandstone at the end with a fun and unique amphitheater to explore. To date my favorite Snow Canyon hike with little ones.
