Hidden Pinyon Trail
Length: 1.5 miles round trip
Difficulty: Moderate

Description: The Hidden Pinyon Trail in Snow Canyon State Park is a short, but mildly strenuous hike that takes visitors up into the rocks below the Petrified Dunes, and to the Hidden Pinyon Overlook. The trail is pretty primitive, rocky and uneven for most of the way, and sandy for the little bit that is not rocky.

Hidden Pinyon Trailhead
The trailhead is located on the west side of Snow Canyon Drive, just below the park campground.

Three Ponds Trail Junction
The Three Ponds Trail begins just south of the Hidden Pinyon Trailhead, crosses West Canyon, and then ends in the entrance to a very narrow, deep canyon.

Loop Trail
The Hidden Pinyon Trail circles a 150-foot hill of sandstone, creating a loop trail just underneath the turnoff to the overlook.

Hidden Pinyon Overlook
The Hidden Pinyon Overlook, at the top of a bluff above West Canyon, offers great views of the canyon bottom.
