Its closed for the year.

We visited on a Saturday, avoiding the crowds at the main part of Zion. We did this trail after hiking the Middle Taylor Creek Trail. Timber Creek Overlook is a quick hike, so I'd recommend you tack on another hike like Taylor Creek if you're looking to make this a day trip. I think Timber Creek is more of an easy vs. moderate trail. The trail is a bit rocky in some places, but nothing bad. The view at the end is quite awesome. This little trail has a great payoff for the little bit of walking involved.

What an introduction to Zion. Drove this at sunset on our way into St. George — my heart, it is massive and majestic. Don't miss this.

Nice short hike, it was cold (snowing) and muddy in mid-March but fairly easy considering. Great hike, great views! Wonderful

Awesome.... part of my Zion trip.

This is not a trail. It’s a hike up the side of the mountain. You have to push through trees and shrubs. Not for the faint of heart.

Great trail. River crossings were fun to get across. Fun for older kids.

Easy rolling hike that crosses the creek over and over again making it an intetesting hike! Goes by 2 abandoned cabins and about 15 minutes after the 2nd one is a grotto and double arch. When you first see the grotto on your right there is just a few more feet to see the entire thing. Awesome!

Trail starts out with a gradual climb then gets steeper at about the half way point. Hiked until a boulder wedged into a narrow part of the canyon. Loved all the variety of rock formations and colors.

Steady but short up hill climb to a scenic overlook encompassing the entire Kolob Canyon and surrounding valley. The trip down was painful on the knees but I would definitely do this again. Nice picnic areas immediately off the start of the trail.

Beautiful drive with majestic views. Not nearly as crowded as Zion's main canyon.

Best trail. Very quiet and peaceful. Perfect hike after a long drive. Beautiful.

easy trail with rewarding views and the best overlook of kolob canyon for sunset

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.

Great drive with plenty of places to pull out and take pictures. I did the drive after a full day at Zion and it was a great way to end the day. The view at the end is amazing.

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.

My first national park. Beautiful scene and lots of places to snap photos. Wish there was more than one foot trail though the view at the end of the trail is nice.

Took this awesome short drive instead of Zion as Zion traffic was long. Very beautiful. Do it if Zion is busy.

this hike was amazing.. hike it around 7, because the colors are the most vibrant and then you'll catch the sun setting on the way back, which makes the colors change again. ran into a skunk, so be careful. I had music playing, so that provided plenty warning and still saw wild life. this hike is was awesome and plan on doing it lots more, especially w friends who visit.

note: you have to park in the parking lot to the right, walk across the street to towards the canyon and that's where the unmarked path is.

also, the other pics uploaded by someone else is of a different Taylor Creek fork, think left fork. that one is not very scenic, the south for is the pics I uploaded and is worth every step.
