Description

The trail begins off the Kolob Terrace Road and wanders through the open fields with wide open views of the surrounding rock formations. As you near Hop Valley, the trail starts its descent. The valley floor of Hop Valley is breathtaking with its flat sandy bottom and vertical walls rising on both sides. The trail is sandy but well worn. The campsites are at the far end of the valley before the descent into La Verkin Creek. The descent into La Verkin Creek is steep and offers access to the Kolob Arch. Camping is permitted in designated sites only.
