The trail definitely doesn't disappoint. a great combination of dirt trail, walking in the water, and some rock scrambling. The canyon itself has stellar views around every corner. When you get to the "ladder" on the first falls, be wary about not only going up, but also if you can get down. The ladder for the second falls is even more sketchy, but totally doable if you have moderate athletic ability. This hike is on my must-do list whenever I'm in the area.
A beautiful hike that follows the water the entire way. Ends in a large rock amphitheater which was a great place to take a break and have a bite. Great way to get ready for Zion. Not crowded at all on a weekday afternoon.
As mentioned by some other reviewers it is clearly marked NO DOGS (except for service animals).
Great Hike! Wear shoes good for land and water. The sign at the entrance says dogs are welcome Although we took our smaller dogs with us, we wouldn't do it again. Plan for a $10 parking fee.... and ENJOY! I love this hike! The slot canyon and waterfall are amazing.
Really enjoyed this hike up Taylor Creek. It's relatively easy and the elevation gain is a slow, gradual climb. But due to overall elevation gain and length, I'd probably put it in the moderate category, though on the easier end of moderate. End of the trail features very nice, classic Zion landscapes with steep red cliffs.

We really enjoyed this hike. It was rather easy, with beautiful scenery along the way. But two updated to the AllTrails description: 1) The trail is NO DOGS. After taking our dog along for the day, we decided to bring him on the hike since the parking lot was pretty empty, and no one we encountered seemed to mind. But it is definitely marked No Dogs. 2) The AllTrails map (along with the altitude changes) seems to go off course for the last bit of the trail (and indicates a steep climb and descent). The last portion of the trail is acually very flat and follows the stream bed to Double Arch Alcove, which is a big rock amphitheater.
