This was a very enjoyable hike. We ran into ONE other person on the entire trail. The trail takes you across the creek probably 20 times each way, so be prepared for that. The double arch alcove at the end is beautiful. Make sure to...More

A very easy hike of 5 miles round trip. Plenty of shade on the entire hike. Wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet as you will cross an ankle deep stream over 50 times during the hike. The destination point of the double arch...More

Sand feels great underfoot after hiking mostly concrete & rock trails of Observation Point and Scouts Landing... in Spring I recommend bringing light rain gear. With no precipitation forecast we were surprised by a hail storm just a mile before reaching the arches. We chose...More

We came to Kolob canyons after entering Zion NP from the east due to the massive crowds and mess of parking around the actual Zion Canyon area. What a great decision! This hike was very lightly traveled compared to any of those in the main...More

I would skip this hike if time is short. It simply doesn't compare with the hikes in the main canyon in Zion. During the hike you cross a shallow creek something like twenty times. The views are nice, but it's nothing super special. Your goal...More

After spending a few days in the main canyon of Zion, we were looking for something different and had read that the Taylor Creek hike was less busy and not extremely difficult. The drive takes about 45 minutes from Springdale. Stop in the Visitor's Center...More

The trail alongside the middle fork of Taylor Creek starts about 2 miles up the road from the visitor center. It's maybe a 3-3 1/2 hours there and back. The trail ends up at a spectacular double arch alcove. Really dramatic! So it's worth the...More
