From the first parking area just outside of the gatehouse for Snow Canyon you’ll find a paved trail on the west side of the road. This wonderful trail goes 2.8 miles up the canyon and merges with the road at Galoot Hill. The final section can be a challenge due to its steep slope but most of the trail is fairly moderate.
If you want more than just this short section in the canyon you can also connect with the trails that run along Snow Canyon Parkway and along SR-18. Combining these sections will give you an 18-mile loop to enjoy. The vertical distance you’ll have to climb is 1050 with some very steep sections sprinkled in there so be prepared for a workout if you choose to do the whole loop.
