My personal favorite in Snow Canyon State Park, Jenny's Canyon trail is a short, family-friendly outing to a short slot canyon. This is a hike the whole family is likely to enjoy, especially children when they see the deep dark slot. It is short enough, even fairly young children can making the outing on their own. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the history of the name. I would love to know the story of Jenny, and how she got this amazing short canyon named after her.

Note: We visited mid-afternoon on a winters day. The lighting that time of day was particularly stunning and made for great photos. Morning lighting is lightly not as good.

Route

From the trailhead, the short trail descends to and crosses the sandy wash before making a small uphill climb to Jenny's Canyon. Just before entering the canyon is a junction, with an overlook to the right a short distance, and the canyon on the left.
