Description

This is a viewpoint with easily one of the best hike to view ratios in all of Zion National Park. It offers an unrivaled view of southwestern Utah and is a treat for all ages. This is the perfect place to stop if only visiting the Kolob Canyon portion of the Park for a short period.

Long Walk: Walk a short ways south on the Timber Creek Overlook trail from the Kolob Canyons Viewpoint parking area.

Family Friendly: This is a super easy hike and kids will love the views (as will you!).
