Red Rock Heaven
Hiking Snow Canyon
The hiking trails range from easy to hard, short to long, and are always accompanied by a large array of colors.
Johnson's Canyon was the first hike I did. It is a short 2 mile round trip on a very easy-going trail. We brought the baby a long because it was so easy. It was a gorgeous canyon with a small stream running through the middle of it.
Three Ponds Trail is an intermediate trail. It is 3 and half miles round trip. It takes you from the main road of the canyon into a very narrow canyon that from what I could tell used to hold water. The hike isn't to steep or rocky but what makes it a little harder is the deep sand that we had to hike through. It was a real workout on our calves. The three ponds at the end were not so amazing but the hike to them was full of beauty and fun places to explore.
Lava Flow Trail Overlook is another easy 2 mile trail. The trail takes you past some caves that used to be lava tubes. It also leads you up some petrified sand dunes and provides an excellent view of the canyon walls and the white rock that contrasts greatly from the red rock.
