Yes! Lava Tubes! Utah! St. George is a popular destination for Spring Break here in Utah. While you are in the area get out and explore some of the beautiful surroundings, Snow Canyon State Park is a must. It is beautiful with black lava rock on the ground and the red stone cliffs surrounding you. The Lava Tubes or Caves are on the Lava Flow Trail which begins about 3.6 miles north of the south entry station into Snow Canyon. This is more of a walk than a hike, only about 2 miles in and out. Make sure to bring headlamps so you can climb deep into the tubes. When you get down inside the tubes, keep exploring, sometimes you think it’s a dead end and you slip through a crevasse into a larger room. Lots of high school kids come here with glow sticks which is discouraged by the Park Rangers because of the trash and damage left behind. Be careful the rocks are sharp and there is a steep entrance but worth the effort. This hike is fun for small kids or older Grandparents. Have fun and enjoy the wonders of Snow Canyon State Park.
We will be featuring a lot of posts in the next couple months about the St. george area in preparation of Spring Break! Yahoo!
