Jenny’s Canyon in Snow Canyon State Park is a short, sweet walk that offers hikers of limited mobility or time a chance to experience a slot canyon. In a park without much shade, the canyon mouth can be a nice place for a picnic.
Directions • From the park’s south entrance, travel 0.6 miles north on Snow Canyon Drive. There is a parking area to the east as the road bends. This is the trailhead.
Hike • From the trailhead, walk 500 feet east and southeast toward a drainage. Cross the drainage and follow the trail to the rock walls to the east. The trail leads to a short climb up a rocky area and into a tall, narrow, very short slot canyon to the north. A historical marker is at the mouth of the canyon. Go inside to explore and then follow a trail spur south to a little overlook before heading back to the trailhead.
