Snow Canyon Loop
The Snow Canyon Loop Trail is a paved double-track bike, hiking, and rollerblading trail that loops through Snow Canyon from the outskirts of St. George. Although the trail is smooth and paved, there are some steep spots that will spook (or injure) youngsters who are just learning to ride. If you ride the entire loop, including the section of highway at the top of Snow Canyon, you'll travel 18 miles and climb 1050 vertical feet. Peak altitude is 3960 feet. In Snow Canyon, there are a lot of short trails with plenty of southern Utah's unique Navajo sandstone. Kids LOVE Snow Canyon.

Between the top of Snow Canyon and the picnic area trailhead, there's a mile of missing trail (we presume this will be added soon). This is the only spot in the 18 miles where you'll be competing with cars.
The loop is really a triangle: one side is the path from St. George up to the top of the Canyon. This route is fairly straight, but rolls up and down, with some steeper spots that might be hard for little tykes and roller bladers.
For a shorter and very easy ride, we recommend you ride up Snow Canyon from the bottom, have lunch at the picnic area where the trail ends at Galoot Hill, then cruise back down.

Getting there:  Heading south, take the Bluff Street exit in St. George. Turn right onto Bluff Street. Keep going straight until Bluff Street starts to leave the city (although the city is rapidly growing out in this direction). You can park here (see the trail  the right side of the road?) and ride to the loop, or drive on to another parking area on the loop.
Top of Snow Canyon: Keep driving straight out of town on Highway 18. When the road turns left into snow canyon, park at the small lot on the south side of the road. Take the road down 1.5 mile to mile marker 11 -- the paved trail begins on your right, across the street from a parking/picnic area on your left. This trailhead GPS is N 37 12.794' W 113 38.896', altitude 3500 ft.
Snow Canyon Drive: When Bluff Street becomes Highway 18 towards Snow Canyon and Veyo, watch for the intersection with Snow Canyon Parkway about a mile later. Turn left onto Snow Canyon Drive. You'll see the trail on the right. Continue until you reach a parking area 2 miles later at GPS N 37 08.968' W 113 37.634', altitude 2900 ft.
