Road Construction Restricts Access To Snow Canyon

Snow Canon State Park, located near St. George, is delightful right now, with mild spring temperatures. This is the perfect time to hike, bike and explore the park and surrounding area.

Travelers need to know that road construction will sometimes delay traffic coming to the park's south entrance through April. The road will be open through the period but delays are likely.

People are advised to use the park's north entrance.

This article has details. Below are excerpts.

“And with the Ironman St. George route being changed to include this section of roadway, the city (recognized) the priority of the reconstruction plans,” city Engineer Chuck Gillette said.

The project timeline puts completion at the end of April, though it may be finished sooner. The road and adjacent walking trail will remain open during the project, but park visitors should expect delays and hazardous driving conditions and are encouraged to use the park’s north entrance as a better alternative.

Snow Canyon is one of our most popular state parks. Many activities are offered during the spring, including ranger-led hikes into Johnson Canyon and Paradise Canyon. See park event information.
