The trail takes you crossing Taylor creek many times. This is a great way to cool down throughout the hike. Just make sure you bring lots of drinking water since this side of the park is more wild. The main reward you get from this trail is a massive impressive alcove at the end of the trail. But if you... More

Quiet and enjoyable hike. We happened to visit during a little rain, so it was even more pleasant on the open spaces. Hike goes along little creek and you have to cross it about 40 times - no problem at all as it is very narrow and small. The alcove very picturesque and sure worth the hike to it.

My husband and I took this hike on our one and only full day in Zion National Park because were worried that Zion canyon would be far too crowded. We started at 8:00 am and were the first ones there and didn't see anyone else for almost 3 hours until we began our hike back. It is a relatively easy... More

Read reviews saying this was a must stop. The drive into Kolob Canyon was nice but this trail was very disappointing. Better to spend that time in the Park.

This hike is five miles round trip. It is excellent for families. There gradient is very gradual. It follows a year around stream, passes two historic cabins, and ends at a beautiful red alcove with a double arch. Compared to other hikes in Zion National Park, this one is a lot less traveled. Definitely worth a few hours.

This was an excellent hike, located in the far less visited Kolob Canyons district of Zion NP. I covered the middle fork, which is the commonly travelled section found in the hiking guide at www.nps.gov/zion Did not cover the north fork or south fork, which are options to Taylor Creek. This particular hike takes you along a slow flowing stream.... More

We have done a lot of hiking in Zion National Park but this was our first Kolob Canyon hike. We started at about 10:00 am. and it took us exactly 4 hours. We are leisurely hikers who stop to take a lot of photos and eat lunch but we hiked back out fairly quickly. I had read that the hike... More

Not a difficult hike but it's a long one. Following the creek bed along up through the canyon. Although the main Zion canyon had temperatures into the low 60's F and no snow or ice in sight this hike was chilly and snow covered in places but with grippers and plenty of layers we were fine. Scenery just like Zion... More

When visiting the Kolob Canyons of Zion National Park, hiking the Taylor Creek trail to the Double Alcove Arches is a must! The hike is easy to moderate. The distance of the hike is 5 miles roundtrip. Along the trail there are two cabins built in the 1930's. You will cross Taylor Creek several times during the hike, so plan... More

The hike up Taylor Creek ending at Double Arch Alcove was just as unique and fun as Angels Landing or the Narrows, with a fraction of the crowd. The walls of the finger canyon close around you as you hike until it seems that sunlight must rarely hit the canyon floor where the trail runs. The alcove is a huge... More
