Our newest kayaking destination is quickly becoming a guest favorite. With its blue-green waters
and orange sandstone, Sand Hollow is an amazing backdrop for kayaking, hiking, and photography. The lake
is surrounded by salmon pink sand dunes, and red rocks.
Paddle your kayak around the small coves, or perhaps learn to SUP on this beginner friendly lake. Enjoy a healthy lunch
while digging your bare toes into the coral colored sand.
Once you have thoroughly explored Sand Hollow, take a short, scenic drive to Snow Canyon.

Scramble over fiery red sandstone and wind your way deep into the Hidden Pinyon trail. Sage and juniper scent

Anasazi Indians inhabited the region from A.D. 200 to 1250, followed by Pauite Indians.
