5 Snow Canyon State Park Trails

March is a great month to plan your next hiking adventure, and here at Coral Canyon Resort we have made a list of the best Snow Canyon State Park Trails

Snow Canyon State Park Hikes You Should Try

Petrified Dunes Trail

Petrified Dunes Trail

This is one of the shortest trails in the park, at just 1.2 miles. If you’re a beginner to hiking or traveling with kids, this will be the perfect starting trail. You’re going to be amazed when you start hiking over huge petrified sand dunes. 

The Petrified Dunes Trail explores the mounds and crevices of Navajo sandstone and leads to the Petrified Sand Dunes which are incredibly beautiful. Also, this trail connects to the Three Ponds Trail.

Butterfly Trail

This trail is an easy-to-moderate level of difficulty, so it might be recommended for adults or hikers with some experience. At a length of 2 miles, you will find lots of uneven rock surfaces but no major climbs.

One of the main reasons why you should try the Butterfly Trail is most definitely for the variety of different landscapes. 

Johnson Canyon Trail 

Johnson Canyon Trail

Another great trail for a family hiking adventure! Although the Johnson Canyon Trail passes through a lava field, a dry stream bed, and into a canyon, it is actually really easy and fun to traverse. This trail will lead you to the Johnson Canyon Arch.

Did you know you can have a family picnic at the Paradise Canyon along the route of this trail? That’s right, you should plan a picnic in the middle of your hike and enjoy the great red mountain views.

Lava Flow Overlook Trail

This trail is also known as the Lava Tube; it has a length of 2.5 miles and a moderate level of difficulty. Normally, it will take between 2 or 3 hours to complete. It’s highly recommended if you’re traveling with kids.

If you’re staying at one of the Coral Canyon vacation rentals, it will take you just 18 minutes to reach the entrance of the Lava Flow Overlook Trail. If you’re looking for the most popular hike in Snow Canyon State Park, this is it!

Whiptail Trailhead

Whiptail Trailhead

This trail is very popular because you’re allowed not only to walk it, but also to go biking and jogging. It’s one of only 2 places where you can ride a bike in Snow Canyon State Park

It is 6 miles in length but it’s not a difficult trail. The only disadvantage is that because of the many activities you can do, it might get crowded. However, if you don’t mind the people, you should give it a chance!

With this list you’re now ready to choose one of the Snow Canyon State Park trails for you and your family.
