This hike shows as Red Hill but the BLM name is Red Hollow. It's ascends up for about a mile and a half to a fence/gate where it changes to Thor's Lair trail. This trail offers well marked options but they all lead down to the BLM's Thunderbird Garden trailhead behind the Cedar City Golf Course. The uphill Red Hollow trail is mostly in a canyon. The descending Thor's Lair is more wooded. Found one spot near the end of Thor's Lair with a decent view to the west. Not a bad hike close to town.

The first two miles are tough when it's hot, but after that, it turns into a trail that's worth every step. It becomes very shaded, and breathes like nature itself. I can't wait to come back!

Easy hike, bunch of shallow water crossings leading to the beginnings of an Arch. Very pleasant way to spend the afternoon

trail was super easy to follow! and the hills around it make for some fun rock climbing!

Really fine hike. Next time we'll continue past the rockfall. We're told there are some really nice side canyons further on.

Did this hike today-it was very muddy but overall an enjoyable hike. It does get pretty long on the way back. If you continue on the trail beyond the sign saying trail is done, you can get up to a nice rock area with a better view of the arch.

It took us 5.5 hours, 15 miles to hike to the arch, this sign is small and the arch is up high if someone wasn't there to point it out we would of hiked passed it. Amazing views along the way, well worth it, easy hike if you can endure the milage.

As opposed to some of the other reviews, the trail thats been recorded is the one that goes through the canyons. It's a very easy to follow, wide, gorgeous path most of the way.

The trail was difficult to follow so we just scrambled up the backside of the mountain. It was difficult but very fun. The view was beautiful and so worth it!

Great hike in Kolob canyon. Didn't hear much about it so we were unsure. Easy hike that takes you to 2 cabins and a double arch. Well worth the hike, the views of the red walls were gorgeous and it was lightly trafficked.

Great canyon and easy! If you want to push back into the slot canyon it gets just a little bit more challenging, but well worth the time! Very pretty in the fall!
