Jenny's Canyon is a very easy, but beautiful hike in Snow Canyon State Park. It is perfect for children and leads to a short, simple slot canyon.

To get here from St George, you take Bluff Street heading north until you reach the Snow Canyon Parkway exit that heads west. Follow this road until you reach Snow Canyon Drive, turn right here. This road will take you into the south entrance of the park. You will come upon a small fee station where you will need to pay a fee of $6.00 to enter the park. Bring cash for this! The Jenny's Canyon trailhead will be the first parking spot on your right if you are entering from the south entrance, if you are entering from the north entrance it will be the last trailhead on your left. There is very limited parking here so it's best to go into the park in the morning. The hike itself takes just a few minutes and is very family friendly and great for small kids.

This is a very short hike through sand. The trail can be very hot in the Summer. The slot canyon it leads to is pretty awesome although it is also short. Great for a family hike with older or younger adventurers.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
