Short little overlook hike. Views aren’t much better than from the lot, but if looking to get another mile in, then it is a nice stroll.

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.

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