  • Smaller state park with plenty of hiking. The trails range from very easy to OMG. We even saw some rock climbers. Cost $10 per car.  more »
  • We love Zion's National Park, but it can get so congested. We were pleasantly surprised by how beautiful Snow Canyon was. It isn't very large, but there are plenty of pretty trails that could keep you...  more »

  • Beautiful place to hike/bike/walk/scramble with the family. Paved trails, unpaved trails, dunes, steep rocks--something for everyone. Does get really full and busy after 11am. Best to arrive before 10:30 in order to secure a parking spot. Bring lots of water, sunscreen, and a hat--the sun can get pretty intense. Your throat will get coated with a fine layer of sand if you scramble for long, so bring lots of water.
  • Such a fabulous Utah park! Good variety of easy, moderate, and difficult trails. These were well marked on the park map, which helped us decide where to go. We took Butterfly trail to the lava tube. The climb down into the lava tube was more than Grandma wanted to do (more than I wanted to do with the gear I was carrying, too), but it was still a great walk. The scenic overlooks are amazing. Really neat to see volcanic features as well as the beauty of the usual Utah red rock, layers of color, and geological formations. We were here in early April, and there was a lot of green contrasting with the red and sandy pale, and black rock. Gorgeous natural landscape! Lots of variety.
