La Verkin Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A short backpack up La Verkin Creek to Kolob Arch. This is the only trail suitable for backpacking in the Kolob Canyons area, and it provides access to Willis Creek and the Hop Valley for more extended journeys. The trail is immensely popular and is often crowded on weekends. A special permit system is in effect for camping along La Verkin Creek, and designated campsites will be assigned by the ranger who issues your wilderness permit. Permits can be obtained at the Kolob Canyons Visitor Center. An optional short side trip from La Verkin Creek leads to Kolob Arch, one of the few freestanding arches in Zion National Park."
