Distance: 5.5 miles Round trip
Difficulty: Easy, but there is another option via Paradise Rim that’s a little more rugged / interesting.
Great hike, cool cave, splendid views!
Not a bad spot for a little yoga practice too.
Need I say more? I think not. If you’re in the area for a limited time, this is a good one for your “to do” list.
Getting there: Snow Canyon State Park, Ivins’ entrance. The trailhead is on the right before you reach the park gate. Park in the lot on the left. If you’d like a little more challenging / rugged approach, you can take Lakota Drive to the trailhead for Paradise Rim and come in from the backside. You can also add on a couple miles (~2 each way) if you park at the Chuckwalla parking lot and take the Turtle Rock Trail to connect to the Paradise Rim trail. Anyway, you go, you can’t go wrong.
A little more choppy and a little more climbing on the Paradise Rim Trail
