Hike the Whiterocks Trail

18 Utah 18 - Search Nearby - Added by John Maurizi

Panoramic views of Snow Canyon State Park and the Whiterocks area. Exceptional section of petrified sand dunes make for great photo opportunities.

This trail starts from a parking area just off Route 18.  Follow the obvious trail with the whiterocks to the right and views of Snow Canyon.  The trail descend steep, deep sand path until you reach some petrified sand dunes.  Great photo opportunities here.  This section is short lived as you continue down hill and through open desert. The trail ends when you reach the Lava Flow Trail.  Turning back will take time.  Ascending back up the lengthy section of deep sand sections is a slow go.  Hike this trail early in the morning and bring plenty of water.
