Snow Canyon State Park

Criminally underrated and overlooked because of its proximity to Zion, Snow Canyon is a world all its own. Towering sandstone cliffs make you feel small, and rolling petrified sandstone dunes make you feel like you may have gone to a whole new planet.

This canyon has been the setting for several Hollywood westerns like “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “Hondo,” and “Jeremiah Johnson.”

Visitors can explore on foot, bike or horseback the more than 38-miles of trail found throughout this picturesque park. Hike to the top of the Snow Canyon Cinder Cone, try the Arch Canyon canyoneering route or simply build a sand castle on the sand dunes. Explore the park by night on a moonlit hike or stargaze at the dark skies above.
