Jenny’s Canyon Slot Canyon

Jenny’s Canyon is a very cool and short slot canyon that is easily accessible and fun for the whole family. It is one of the first hikes you come to after entering the state park.

Where to find Jenny’s Canyon

There isn’t a parking lot, but room for many cars along the shoulder of the road just after you enter Snow Canyon State Park. The trail heads off from the right side of the road over to the nearby canyon walls. The path is sandy, but clearly lined with rocks.

When you are nearly there, you come to a sign. There is a tiny overlook to the right and then the cool slot canyon to the left. Since the latter is coolest, we’ll start with the overlook. You head up a path with some rock steps, but it’s short. From there you can see the view back towards the road the canyon around.

Here are the views walking into the slot canyon. You can see my son to get a sense of the size.

The kids loved climbing all around in the slot canyon. There are some low ledges that are perfect for that. It’s also pretty cool to see the streak of blue sky contrasting the giant sandstone walls.
