Plan your trip with our "Canyon Country"
In the small town of Virgin you will see a sign for the Kolob Reservoir, turn there and follow the road.
West Rim - This 14 mile trail leads from Lava point in the Kolob to the Grotto in Zion Canyon. The trail is a forested path for the first 9 miles and then drops into Zion Canyon for the last 5 miles. Along this last section is a side trip to the incredible Angels Landing.
Kolob Arch - This trail is a 14 mile overnight backpack or a rushed one day trip ending at the world's longest free standing arch.
Left Fork of North Creek - Hikers can hike from the bottom up to the lower section of the Subway, but canyoneers begin at the top taking the technical canyoneering route through the Left Fork of North Creek. One well photographed section of the route resembles an empty subway tunnel. The Subway is impressive with its circular water-filled potholes, its deep pools and waterfalls, as well as the eerie lighting.
Right Fork North Creek - The rugged, 12 mile round-trip though the Right Fork of North Creek ends at beautiful Double Falls and Barrier Falls. This is a very long and tough day hike but well worth the trip.
Back Country Permits: are required for all overnight and technical hikes.
