Deep Into KolobThis is an unusual Zion hike, as it starts by travelling downhill, and ends by hiking uphill. The usual objective is to get to the Kolob Arch viewpoint, although for some, Kolob Arch is only a waypoint enroute to Hop Valley or Beartrap Canyon. The canyon north of Kolob Arch, known as Waterfalls Canyon, has some cool waterfalls not far past Kolob Arch.
Camping is allowed along LaVerkin Creek at designated campsites (permit required). A three-day trip allows exploring up LaVerkin Creek and to the waterfall in Beartrap Canyon. Campsites above the intersection with Waterfalls Canyon afford more privacy, if you care for it.
Since most of the hike is in the sun, this makes for a good spring trip.
