The relatively flat Timber Creek Overlook Trail follows along a small ridge with spectacular views of the Kolob Canyons, the Kolob Terrace, and the Pine Valley Mountains. From the trailhead looking north, from left to right you can see an 8,000 ft. mountain ridgeline comprised of Horse Ranch Mountain, Paria Point, Beatty Point, Nagunt Mesa, Timber Top Mountain, and Shuntavi Butte. At trail end, looking south on the far horizon, you may see Mt. Trumbull 100 miles away at the north rim of the Grand Canyon. During spring and early summer months, the Timber Creek Overlook Trial is covered in a beautiful display of desert wildflowers. You may see rare colorful collared lizards along the trail. Parking is ample at the trailhead along with picnic tables and bathroom facilities, and another small picnic area is located 100 yards from the trailhead.

Nice little hike at the end of Kolob Canyon. Views at the end are amazing and better than what you see when you get out of your car. Great 360 view of the whole Canyon.

A short hike with impressive views over the Kolob Canyons. It was incredibly quiet and we saw only 2 people on the trail! Definitely worth the short hike.

First off, everyone visiting Zion should visit Kolob Canyon! That said, this hike is short and very EASY, and goes out to a really beautiful vantage point overlooking the valley and the rock formations of kolob canyon. At the end of the trail of you look right you can see mountains in distance

We got to Zion late in the day on our first day with only a bit of light left, so we decided to drive Kolob Canyon and walk a bit. This was an amazing introduction to an amazing place. Breathtaking views around every corner and speckled with quiet contemplative visitors. The hike part was more of a nature walk, but the soul part left me breathless.
