Snow canyon is only 15 minutes from St George, Utah and has so many neat areas to explore. A favorite of mine is to climb around on the petrified dunes. These are located in the middle of the park right off of the road. There is a trail leading from the parking lot for about 1000 feet to the dunes. Once you reach the dunes, there is no established trail; which leaves you free to wander wherever you want to go.
This area is perfect for those who like to scramble across slick rock. There is not much exposure and therefore this area is great for the entire family. It rarely snows here (despite the name) so it is accessible year round.
- Lunch if you want to take advantage of the picnic tables
