Read reviews saying this was a must stop. The drive into Kolob Canyon was nice but this trail was very disappointing. Better to spend that time in the Park.
This hike is five miles round trip. It is excellent for families. There gradient is very gradual. It follows a year around stream, passes two historic cabins, and ends at a beautiful red alcove with a double arch. Compared to other hikes in Zion National Park, this one is a lot less traveled. Definitely worth a few hours.
