Lava Tubes in Snow Canyon State Park

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. c3b0e89b-7165-40dd-8afa-db14a8ccd083It is beautiful with black lava rock  on the ground and the red stone cliffs surrounding you. img_5765The 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. 92e4d0c6-094f-4fef-bf19-5e2a462266edBe 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.
