USA Snow Canyon

A rugged landscape of twisted red, white, yellow, chocolate brown and orange sandstone and volcanic rock scattered everywhere. The canyon has been the site of Hollywood films such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Electric Horseman, and Jeremiah Johnson. It gets its name not from wintry conditions but for Lorenzo and Erastus Snow, who were prominent pioneering Utah leaders. Numerous hiking trails are particularly brilliant after heavy rain when the rock is saturated and thousands of water pockets are full.

Photography Tips

Due to the park’s proximity to St. George, it can get very busy. Try to go mid-week or very early or late in the afternoon. Avoid mid-day in the summer when temperatures frequently exceed 110° F (43 C).

Travel Information

Park at the Lava Flow trailhead parking lot and follow the trail to the lava tubes (not much to look at in my opinion). The narrow path to the right of the lava tubes leads to bright orange and yellow slabs of sandstone.
