This is a 5 mile round trip hike that starts out of the Kolob Canyon entrance to Zion. It is nicely shaded and you cross the creek 30 times. We did not get our feet wet as there are nicely placed rocks. The trail is...More

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

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
