Hike the Nature Trail in Coral Pink Sand Dunes SP

0.5 Miles Round Trip - Loop Trail

Pink Coral Sand Dunes Trail - Search Nearby - Added by Sarah Levant

Discover the untouched beauty of Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park right outside of Zion National Park.

This state park is not heavily visited and for a makes a great day trip from Zion National Park or Kanab, UT. Expect endless beautiful pink dunes and Utah's red rocks as your backdrop. Once you park, walk out onto the boardwalk and the short Nature Trail will head out just beyond the signs explaining more about the dune formations. The nature trail is fenced off to prohibit ATVs from riding through this section. If you are looking for more, feel free to venture off and explore any dune that inspires you. The entire park is open for hiking and about 90% is open for ATVs.  The dunes are estimated to be over 10,000 years old and the sand can shift as much as 50 feet per year so you might see slightly different formations each time you visit. You can hike in this park for hours.

Sand skiing

I went and tried sand skiing for the first time at these dunes. Although not very big, they are an easy way to get some quick lines in if you have an old setup you don't care about. From the parking lot go to the dune straight back as this one has the necessary steep pitch to get you moving.
