If you haven’t been yet and looking for more hiking in Zion National Park…Taylor Creek Trail in Kolob Canyon is one of the best kept secrets. Still part of Zion National Park, Kolob Canyon is on the back side of the most popular part of the park, so not a lot of tourists. It’s about a 30 minute drive north from Saint George, exit Kolob Canyon. It’s about a 5 miles round trip hike, crisscrossing a beautiful stream. The trail is surrounded by treelined landscapes and majestic red mountain backdrops that define southern Utah. The end of the trail boasts a spectacular alcove that is best left seen rather than describe. The trail is family friendly…not a lot of up and down, so even my 7-year-old could make the hike. Here’s some pics we grabbed over the weekend.
