Snow Canyon State Park

Snow Canyon is located north west of Saint George in the south west corner of Utah.

Snow canyon's main attractions are the lava tubes and lava flows around the red and white sandstone. It is much like a smaller version of Zion National Park.

It costs $5.00 per vehicle per day to visit Snow Canyon
(at the time of this writing)

From I-15 take Highway 18 (Bluff Street) going north.
Turn left at Snow Canyon Parkway
Turn right at Snow Canyon Road (Highway 300).

You can also continue north up Highway 18,
and then enter Snow Canyon from the back.
