Very pretty hike once you get closer to the canyon. However, you are walking in a sandy, rocky wash which takes up most of the hike. You should be comfortable with unsteady terrain the entire way. We also took our medium sized dog with us and he only made it part way before we had to turn back due to some of the large boulders.

First time to Snow Canyon and decided to check out this trail. It’s very easy for anyone of any fitness level and just beautiful. You get sweeping views of all the amazing red rock. I’m not sure if the time of year but when you go past the arch the rest of the trail is closed. Would definitely do again

Great short hike, beautiful Arch towards the end. Lots of Lava formations in the middle.

did it in three hours and went into both forks of the canyon. From the parking area you can walk a trail along the rim of wash or go up the wash to the canyon. We have did it both ways.

Easy hike into a box canyon. On a beautiful day, you might see a red tailed hawks or eagles crisscrossing across the top of the canyon. The silence was perfect. It was serene and peaceful. I love this hike.

Great hike with incredible views! Loved it! I disagree with the distance listed here and sadly I didn’t track it on our hike yesterday. This page has it as an Easy 1.6 round trip, but I think it’s more of a Moderate 4-4.5.

Looked at this hike for years as a possible hike. Finally decided to give it a try. Glad I did. The last little bit of the hike was a little to close to a neighborhood for my liking. Had a great view from the mouth of the cave. Even if the cave was small in depth but large in size.

Loved this hike! At the end we received a real cool surprise. Sitting on a rock near the little pond just talking with my wife when a strange sound from above broke the silence. A long rope came flying down from the top of the canyon and landed in the pond. The end of the rope was measured almost exactly as only the last two feet hit the water. A few minutes later a young lady repelled down the canyon wall from above. We took pictures and videos for her and then sent them to her email. Then her male companion threw a heavy bag down. I’m sure glad I didn’t try to catch it, it would have broken my body into pieces. All in all very entertaining and a fun learning experience. Don’t miss this hike!!

The first 90% of the trail was relatively easy and I was able to follow it pretty well. Near the end you have to climb over a few obstacles but it was doable for a fat guy like me. I lost the trail once the cave was in sight but figured out how to get up and there and the view was worth it. Really pretty trail with changing scenery.

Nice hike, not allowed to hike up near enough to the Arch to see sky beyond Arch. Thus not as exciting of an Arch as I hoped.

Actually Id rate this trail as moderate vs easy. Its not very well marked but once we finally found the cave it was really great!

Fun trail...was actually on my way to Scout Cave but missed the marker so we ended up doing both. Pretty great canyon walls & a cool little water hole at the end that my dog Annie was diggin!

Beautiful day and an easy hike with great views of rock walls!

This is more of a moderate hike. Not easy especially with little ones but doable.

It gets hot, limited shade and trail can get difficult to track at times. Pro is this trail is before the entrance of the state park even though they maintain it..no fee.

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.

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.

Moderate hike. Lots of sand & climbing over rocks. Get there early before sun comes out.

Easy hike. It's fun looking for the petroglyphs, most are well hidden. The views are beautiful, it's a very peaceful place. Hike early as there isn't any shade.

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

Seriously so beautiful. I went off trail a little bit and found a small oasis; it was beyond breathtaking.

Trail is sand and rock/boulder wash. Several places of shade to drink and take a break. The view of the mountains is beautiful. Leave early am in hot weather. Lizards, rabbits, birds, egg shells and flowering trees and plants right now. We took about 2 1/2 hours round trip, leasurely pace.

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.

This was a nice hike! Beautiful views all throughout. Will be doing it again!

1st hike of our 14 days of hiking, very nice an easy!

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.

as has been said it is poorly marked on the trail and on this app as well, if you stop where the trail as marked on the app is you wouldn't reach the canyon walls. gotta keep walking
