Half of it was in the sun and then you hit the canyon and you’re in the shade with some relief about halfway through. It was absolutely beautiful! Kid friendly/ Toddler friendly.

The trail has a section in the middle with tons of annoying little green bugs in the trees, apart from that great trail

A very nice trail at the end of the Kolob Canyons Road, exit 40 off of Interstate 15. The Kolob Canyons area is the northwest section of Zion National Park and is not crowded like the main section of Zion. Good views of the surrounding mountains, nice wild flowers blooming at the time of our visit. No exposed drop-offs along the trail until the end. There are a few areas where the trail is a little rocky, no rock scrambling required though. After our hike, we had a picnic lunch near the trail head. Would not recommend eating there though because we were attacked by little sand fleas... Surprising since there wasn't many bugs along the trail.

Excellent, uncrowded hike. This hike does not appear to be listed in any of the NPS information about Kolob Canyon, so I am glad I had the AllTrails map. Apparently, it is "unofficial". I guess this canyon is popular with climbers and you can find information on the web. But I only saw one pair towards the back of the canyon. Long stretches of the hike are completely shaded, which is nice for the summer heat. No running water anywhere. Driving from the visitor center, there is a large parking lot with restrooms about 0.9 miles past the well-marked trailhead for Middle Fork Taylor Creek, right before an open metal gate across the road. If you park there, you have to walk just a few yards up and across the road to find an unmarked trail. Once you get on the sandy trail, it is easy to follow, although overgrown a bit in places. After a steep uphill slog about a mile into the hike, you enter a narrower very cool canyon that is really nice. My phone's GPS seems to have gotten scrambled in the canyon, but I think this hike worked out to 4 miles round trip, going to the back of the canyon, where it looked like you could keep going if you climbed up the rocks. It didn't look too hard, but I was too tired and running out of water.

Awesome trail if you go down far enough (I went about 3.5 miles in) , highly recommended... with two "buts". 1) You have to be a trailblazer, willing to forge your own trail when the real one disappears. And 2) Go in a group or make lots of noise! Found dozens of bear tracks. I'd hate for you to get eaten because I didn't say that :D Happy trails.

The map is NOT showing the Comanche Trail.

definitely off trail..beautiful views but not worth trudging through brush, trees, cactus and logs

Great easy hike with a fantastic payout. Views are stunning.

Easy, gradual hike but very scenic and panoramic views of the Kolob Canyons one way and mountains the other way

This was the first hike of our trip. Beautiful views the whole time. Nice easy starter. Nothing difficult and it’s perfect for a warmup.

There is no water on this Trail. it's a great trail. with another site or two it would be a 5 star. walk across the street when you park.

Short jike with lots of rubble and mild boulder jumping. Muddy after rain so prepare for that. Great vistas.

Great few miles hike with kids. Fun to see rock climbing toward the top.

first half is really boring but the second half with the pink sand and seeing the climbers was a ton of fun and very pretty.

Many reviews for this trail are misleading. This is not the hike that crosses a creek occasionally and includes historic cabins and a double arch alcove. That is the Middle Fork Taylor Creek Trail. This trail has stretches of pushing through overgrown tree branches and long stretches of walking in the creek. But the first time that I broke out of the woods and found myself face-to-face with the massive canyon wall I was awestruck. Also my husband and I didn't meet anyone else on the trail either way. Possibly my favorite hike of Zion, thanks in part to waterproof boots.

Super muddy Nice view Very quiet

Nice little hike. the views are not that different from what you see while driving up but still worth the effort.

Great views but be prepared for any kind of weather. When we came mid-May, it snowed in the morning before finally clearing up later in the day.

We did this hike in April and started around 5pm. Although this hike is not as exhilarating as other hikes in the area it was actually my favorite. This hike is in Kolob Canyon, and is away from the crowds of the main parts of Zion which made for a peaceful hike. What made this hike fun was you have to cross the creek 20 or so times, so make sure you have waterproof shoes unless you like wet feet. I agree with many of the other reviews to do this hike and get to the double arches (which are pretty cool to see how high they are) and turn around to hike out during sunset. The colors along the canyon walls are amazing as the sun is setting away. I would also make sure not to forget a flashlight just in case you don’t make it back out the trail before dark, the canyon walls are very tall and there are many trees it can be difficult to navigate in the dark especially with all the creek crossings so get out before dark preferably.

Nice, short, uphill hike to a lookout over the canyon area. Very pretty.

We wanted a short trail in the Kolob area before heading back to Vegas. This was a great choice. It was pretty crowded but that was expected since it is an easier trail. The views were exceptional! It was nice to see snow peaked mountains as well as red rocks and trees. Overall definitely a must do if you want just a short hike in this area!

Nice and easy little trail with good views of Kolob Canyons. Definitely a good one if you just want to snap a couple pictures while you’re passing through.

Very cool hike! starts off with a narrow trail where you gradually climb for about a third of a mile. then you hike on a flat trail through a wooded area. then the trail follows along the stream right at the bottom of the vertical cliff face! we stopped short of 1 mile and did not go to the end. spectacular scenery here! very quiet. saw a couple deer as a bonus too.

Very short and muddy today (it had just rained) but great payoff at the end. Great for older folks or little kids who can’t handle more strenuous hikes. Nice scenic drive to the trail too. Not crowded.

I found this to be a short, easy hike with spectacular scenery. I would classify as easy vs. moderate. However, can be a bit steep in places. Did this hike early this morning and didn't realize it was Nation Parks Day with free admission. Almost postponed for another day, but overall not too crowded.
