South Fork of Taylor Creek (Zion National Park) Professional Review and Guide

"A route into the canyon between Paria Point and Beatty Point. This route follows an unofficial trail up the South Fork of Taylor Creek.

It was created by a former park ranger who frequented this canyon because of its rock climbing potential. The trail takes hikers through a beautiful forest within the sheer canyon walls, growing on soil from rockslides and sedimentation."

This initially brushy hike has a dramatic payoff. In the first hundred feet I lost the trail and ended up engulfed in thorns (avoid just walking down the wash that you hit soon after starting), but once I found the trail it delivered a very diverse hike with a startling finish. A large landslide adds some unexpected steepness to this short hike. The willows turn into oaks turn into maples, but after some bush scraping you end up with more and more massive redwall views, until you quite literally run right into one. At that time, your hiking surface becomes coral sand that leads one straight down canyon into a beautiful red canyon dramatically punctuated with a massive blocking chockstone. This is a winner, and probably is not visited very often in the less visited Kolob area of Zion.
