Directions from Virgin: Drive northward on Kolob Terrace Road, toward Kolob Reservoir, approximately 14.5 miles. Look for a trailhead on the right side of the road immediately north of Spendlove Knoll.

Great views along the way. I would classify this as challenging if your packing all of your gear and hiking. Day hiking would be fairly easy. Map distances are not accurate that are provided by Zion park. Water sources are pretty sketch but we had filters and survived!

We had a hard time getting to the Wildcat Canyon Trailhead- were about 1/2 mile out, second guessed our selves and turned around. Hitched a ride to Lava Point, as we were doing the Trans Zion Trek. It was a beautiful trail though.

Just backpacked this last weekend to add some extra time in Zion while backpacking the West Rim trail. Compared to West Rim, the views on Wildcat Canyon are good but not great. It is an easier hike with some good picture opportunities. Ending near Lava Point gives you an opportunity to hop up there and get in some good sites.
