Play in the Snow Canyon State Park Sand Dunes

Tom’s experience playing in the Snow Canyon State Park Sand Dunes:

The Snow Canyon State Park Sand Dunes are a fun place to run around and play. The sand can get awfully hot in the afternoon so I recommend going here first. If you go on a popular weekend then you may not even see the sand there will be so many people playing on the sand.

Sand Dunes Snow Canyon State Park

There are small hills to climb and run down. Dogs are not allowed off of paved trails in Snow Canyon State Park.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The trailhead starts right next to the road. As you enter the park there is a nominal park fee. They should give you a map. The trailhead is close to the south entrance at the bottom of Snow Canyon State Park.

Explore the family friendly Lisa Falls

Tom’s experience hiking to Lisa Falls:

Lisa Falls is a multitiered waterfall up Little Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake City. Lisa Falls Hike

The trail up to the waterfall is very short, about .11 miles from the parking area. However, the trail to the falls is pretty steep.

Salt Lake City Lisa Falls

You must cross the stream to get to the waterfall so either wear shoes that can get wet or be prepared to jump across rocks.

Hike Lisa Falls

It really wasn’t too hard to keep your feet dry on this hike. The waterfall is pretty neat and has at least two tiers.

Lisa Falls Waterfall

The river itself is also very pretty as it flows along the granite rocks. You can climb up to the top of Lisa Falls if you climb up the left hand side as you are looking at the waterfall.

It isn’t too difficult but it is dangerous. Dogs are not allowed up Little Cottonwood Canyon or on this hike.

Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: The Lisa Falls trailhead isn’t marked but isn’t too difficult to find. At the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon you will drive up canyon for 2.7 miles. There will be a small parking lot on the right side of the road and another small parking lot on the left hand side of the road. The trail starts on the left hand side so if you can park there thats awesome. The trail is pretty easy to see. When we went it was pretty crowded and easy to find.
