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.

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

Easy walk out to the overlook. Very few people on the trail. Great views. Worth the short walk.

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.

This was an easy, not crowded hike on the quiet side...our first stop coming up to Utah...a little appetizer of what was to come. The seclusion was enjoyable!
