60 Miles for 60 Years Challenge

Snow Canyon State Park

SNOW CANYON STATE PARK – In celebration of the Utah State Park system’s 60th anniversary, Snow Canyon State Park is excited to launch their 60 Miles for 60 Years Challenge. Beginning on January 23, 2017, and running through November 11, 2017, visitors are encouraged to hike any combination of designated trails in Snow Canyon to reach the 60-mile goal.

“Snow Canyon has more than 38-miles of amazing trails,” Snow Canyon State Park Manager Kristen Comella said. “Visitors can earn their miles and learn about the canyon on the 1.5-mile Hidden Pinyon nature trail, enjoy soaring vistas from the 9-mile Gila Trail, or even rack up miles while participating in one of the many ranger-guided hikes offered throughout the year.”

To track miles, visitors can get a mileage log at park headquarters or download a copy. Once 60-miles is reached, visitors should bring their log to park headquarters to receive a free commemorative pin and have their photo taken and added to the park’s 60 Miles for 60 Years Wall of Fame.

“We hope our visitors will embrace this challenge,” Comella said. “This is a fun opportunity for individuals, families, and groups to explore the canyon and be inspired by the park.”
