Taylor Creek Middle Fork Trail – Zion National Park

Taylor Creek Trail is located on the NE portion of Zion National Park. It’s a moderately traveled 2 mile out and back trail that ends in a huge alcove. The hike features two cabins and multiple stream crossings. If you have gone to Zion before, Taylor Creek and the Kolob Canyon area is fairly remote compared to the more popular attractions. It is easy to overlook which is good (lower traffic) and bad (people miss the scenic drive and the canyon itself). If you have spare time and want something different than the ‘standard’ hikes (Angel’s Landing, Canyon Overlook, Emerald Pools, etc.), take a drive up to Kolob Canyon and check out one (or all three) of the Taylor Creek trails.

The popular main section of Zion National Park is surely a thrill, but there are other areas of the park that are often overlooked by visitors. Kolob Canyons to the north of the main park is an example, and that’s too bad. Driving the park’s winding red (from embedded sandstone) road, is a thrill a minute as wide vistas of shockingly red cliffs, bold green trees, and bright blue skies (at least on the day we were there) combine to create unsurpassed natural masterpieces. There are challenging hiking trails, too. Larry Richardson created this video for RichardsonArtPhotographyStore.com using an Apple iPhone 7 and iMovie.

So we got a call for a 2011 Chevy Silverado 4×4 stuck in the snow up on Kolob Terrace Road. Zion dispatch told us it was in deep snow and we needed the snow cat. It’s a Bombardier Bombi (we think). We towed it up on Kolob Mountain with blue steel, a 2016 Ford F-250 Powerstroke Diesel.

When we got there, we realized the yellow banana would have been just fine, but the Bombardier made short work of towing him out! We got him turned around and on his way, he was super happy.

In this episode we hike from one end of Zion National Park to the other, from the East entrance to the Grotto, to Angel’s Landing, to the West Rim, to Wildcat Canyon to Kolob Canyon. What a fantastic trip. This was one of our top 5 trips ever.

Some video I shot while on a road trip from LA to Texas in June 2017. First stop was near Zion NP in Utah. I camped up at Kolob Reservoir (free camping). Did some kayaking, then drove to the Zion park the next day. On day three I drove from Zion to Bryce Canyon (very pretty drive), spent a night there camping then drove to the Grand Canyon for a quick look. After the canyon I drove to a campsite near Flagstaff AZ (Lake Mary) for the night. Next day I drove to New Mexico to go camping in the mountains NE of Albuquerque, next morning I drove the rest of the way to N. Texas to visit my folks. On the way back I stopped at Lake Mary again to do some kayaking.

We go light shaft hunting at Sunrise hiking in Zion’s Kolob Canyon in Southern Utah. The north end of Zion National Park has an awesome row of majestic and photogenic rock cliffs called Kolob Canyon. We hang out with Rusty Parkhurst from RustyParkhurst.com and try to capture rays of light as the sun rises over the red rock cliff faces. It takes a bit of hunting before we find a beautiful light shaft shining directly on a crazy slanted cliff side grove of green trees!

It was an awesome morning in Kolob Canyon and I still don’t feel like I have quite captured it well. Can’t wait to do it again!

We got a call for a Toyota Yaris that had become stuck in our first snowfall of the season.
The vehicle was stuck on the lava point Road, on Kolob mountain.
I know the place well, it’s right on the border of Zion national Park, and it traps many vehicles every year.

We were able to locate and extricate vehicle without any trouble.
This gave us a little bit of time to practice using the drone.
