We try to get to Snow Canyon every time we're in St. George. It is less visited than other sites, and has some wonderful trails and scenery. Great hiking and just gawking with easy access to St. George.

Yes two years in a row. We love it there. It’s not that big so book in advance. Lovely setting, quiet and peaceful. Free showers and flush toilets.
