Head to Bluff Street on the west side of St. George and then head north. You just keep going until you get to the overlook to Snow Canyon, then down into the canyon for some fun, then to Jacob Hamblin’s home and then to the Arboretum. It can take as little as a few hours or as much as a day. But its well worth seeing and fits together as a really nice loop.
