Snow Canyon- A Mini Zion’s National Park

The Snow Canyon park sits quietly tucked amid lava flows and soaring sandstone cliffs is a place everyone should visit when in St. George, Utah.

This colorful desert environment boasts of red Navajo sandstone, lava flows, petrified dunes, white rock, sand dunes, and a cinder cone.

The Perfect Place for an Afternoon Hike

It’s the perfect place to hike if you have kids or friends who aren’t season hikers for several reasons:

  • Cost $6: You don’t need to stay all day. You can hike and be back for nap-time
  • Short hikes with big payoffs: the colorful views are unbeatable
  • Landscape and hiking variety: more than 38 trails
  • Hike/Run/Bike: all are acceptable on these wonderfully kept roads and trails
  • Nature Studies: Join state park sponsored activities for free. Go on a full moon hike or on a sunset nature sketch walk.

I want everyone to discover Snow Canyon. With the declining percentage of Americans engaging in outdoor activities each year, we can show our children how we cherish our environment and help them understand why it’s worth preserving.

I live with my twin girls and husband at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Salt Lake City, Utah. In the summer I like to run, hike, and camp. In the winter I like to snow shoe, cross country ski and cozy up to a stack of novels. My family delights me with their love, humor, and desire to go on outdoor adventures with me from catching butterflies to dipping toes in rivers, to making s'mores up the canyon. I earned a Master of Professional Communication at Westminster College and was marketing manager for the Utah Symphony & Opera Deer Valley Music Festival and Program Director at Brighton Girls Camp. Both opportunities fueled my love for the outdoors.
