Bitter cold wind and muddy trail, but the views in Kolob Canyon are beautiful. Worth getting out of the car to enjoy them!

A relatively easy hike if you take your time. I think this has better views than the parking lot if you climb down some of the rocks; there is less tree interference in the pictures.

Great little trail that gives another view of Kolob Canyons. Loved Kolob in general so we really enjoyed it. The whole trail still had snow but we had no problem traveling through it. I think this whole section of the park is very underrated.

Awesome view. Ground was partially frozen when we went in the morning 11/23. Lots of mud right now from previous rain and snow.

Good trail to a viewpoint that is very easy and not a lot of ups and downs.

If you want to stretch your legs, ok. But there are better views from the parking area.

Great family hike. I went in November and it was cold and windy so be prepared for much cooler temps than in Zions main canyon. Once you get to the end you not only get to look back on the red monoliths that make Kolob canyon famous but also a distant but equally beautiful view to Zion’s main canyon and surrounding area. Really enjoyed this one.
