Great hike in Kolob canyon. Didn't hear much about it so we were unsure. Easy hike that takes you to 2 cabins and a double arch. Well worth the hike, the views of the red walls were gorgeous and it was lightly trafficked.

Loved this hike. Very easy and not long. Once we got to the slots that's when the water was unavoidable and absolutely freezing. Worth it, but freezing. On the way down I saw a woman heading up with rain boots. Great idea! Our wool socks and hiking shoes didn't do the trick and we didn't stay as long as we would have liked when our toes felt like they were going to fall off. Highly recommend this one!

Great canyon and easy! If you want to push back into the slot canyon it gets just a little bit more challenging, but well worth the time! Very pretty in the fall!

One of the most beautiful slot canyon hikes in Utah. Easy to get to, fun for kids (8 and older). A small natural water slide makes it fun for the whole family!

Gorgeous hike! Had two ten year olds who did great and an 8 year old who managed ok but didnt enjoy the ICE COLD water. They were a bit nervous on the ladders but did fine with a lttle help. I wouldnt bring anyone younger than about 8 if I was planning to make it past both ladders. Even though our feet froze the first week of november was a good time to hike this. (Not crowded) I recommend Neoprene socks and hiking shoes. I wore smartwool socks and hikers and my feet were beyond cold. Cant wait to hike this again!

Awesome mountains ..!

Really enjoyed doing this one on the trip. A little history with the 2 cabins and a lot of scenery. Hiking in the spring the creeks were a little high but not a problem but it kept us out of the nearby narrows that we planned to do as well. Zion is my 2nd favorite place I've hiked thus far. i'd like to go back with a backpack and a week or more...

This hike does not disappoint. We hiked about 7 miles out and back. First few miles are very easy, basically walking, and would be suitable for families. You can continue on and get into a little more technical hiking. Every time you turn a corner you are met with beautiful views. This was our favorite hike of the week. Not highly traveled which lends to peaceful experience. A must do!

Beautiful hike in October. Fall leaves are awesome! Aside from the steep stairs at the beginning, a fairly easy hike. Took my 5 and 9 year-old and they did pretty good. You cross the creek a lot...water was low enough the adults stayed dry, but the kids needed help across with their short legs. I clocked the length on my GPS watch and it was 6 miles round trip. The ending isn't spectacular, but the views along the way are worth hiking it all.

Spectacular beautiful hike- not recommended for little kids in the fall- water too cold. My 8&13yr old enjoyed it. My 2 doxies also managed! Highly recommend-

Great hike during the fall to see the leaves changing, does get a little chilly due to being in the shade for most of the hike in October.

The arch is huge but the trail really doesn't get very close.

Absolutely gorgeous totally worth it!!

Quite easy and lots of fun!

Beautiful hike. I'll definitely go back. Make sure you have your water shoes Bc you will need. A lot of walking in the water.

Incredible views around every turn in the trail. Easy, well marked trail. Go beyond the arches in the creek for more views. Trail gets shaded by 11 am and is cool, so go early or bring a light wrap. Leaves showing beautiful fall colors!

Amazing! Did it the first week of June. The water was so refreshing to walk through.
