Red Navajo sandstone, capped by an overlay of black lava rock, makes photography, hiking, biking and camping in Snow Canyon State Park a double treat. Early spring and fall use of the park is especially appealing due to southern Utah's moderate winter climate. Two recent volcanic cones are found near the head of the canyon.
Because winters are mild here, hiking is pleasant year-round. Spring and fall are ideal times to hike, and many winter days are very pleasant. During summer, daytime temperatures can get really hot but hiking is enjoyable in the morning hours.
