TEMPORARY 7 MONTH CLOSURE: Access to portions of the Kolob Canyons District of Zion National Park will be restricted due to a construction project beginning May 1, 2018. The project involves reconstructing sections of the road, repaving the entire road, and adding accessible parking, sidewalk, and toilet facilities. All of Kolob Canyons Road, the Visitor Center, and parking lot off of Interstate 15, will be closed to all traffic during the seven month project. The Taylor Creek Trail, the Timber Creek Overlook Trail, Lee Pass Trailhead and other areas served via the Kolob Canyons Road will not be available to the public. Overnight permitted hikes will be drop off / pick up only, from April 15 through April 30, 2018. No vehicles or hiking will be permitted inside the closure beginning May 1, 2018. Construction engineers and Park officials have determined that closing these areas during the project will be safest for visitors and workers, as well as expediting the work, so the area may open at the soonest possible date. Visitors will be able to access the La Verkin Creek Trail and hike to the Kolob Arch via the Hop Valley Trail. Visitors may access the Hop Valley Trailhead from the Kolob Terrace Road. Overnight trips require a permit. There are many surrounding State Parks, Forest Service and public land scenic areas to consider as alternatives to Kolob Canyons during this closure. Please check park website or call park for most up to date information.

I came to Kolob Canyons today to hike several of the trails and found that the park is current closed and will be so from 1 May to 1 December 2018. See https://www.stgeorgeutah.com/news/archive/2018/03/15/kolob-canyons-to-close-for-7-months/#.WxG_jWenpI4 It's a beautiful place and I look forward to getting to these trails.

Easy rolling hike that crosses the creek over and over again making it an intetesting hike! Goes by 2 abandoned cabins and about 15 minutes after the 2nd one is a grotto and double arch. When you first see the grotto on your right there is just a few more feet to see the entire thing. Awesome!

Trail starts out with a gradual climb then gets steeper at about the half way point. Hiked until a boulder wedged into a narrow part of the canyon. Loved all the variety of rock formations and colors.

this hike was amazing.. hike it around 7, because the colors are the most vibrant and then you'll catch the sun setting on the way back, which makes the colors change again. ran into a skunk, so be careful. I had music playing, so that provided plenty warning and still saw wild life. this hike is was awesome and plan on doing it lots more, especially w friends who visit.

note: you have to park in the parking lot to the right, walk across the street to towards the canyon and that's where the unmarked path is.

also, the other pics uploaded by someone else is of a different Taylor Creek fork, think left fork. that one is not very scenic, the south for is the pics I uploaded and is worth every step.
