Timber Creek Overlook is a short hike with a stunning panoramic view. This hike is suitable for all ages and skill levels. 

The Timber Creek Overlook trail is located at the end of the Kolob Canyon drive in Zion National Park. This hike is very family friendly and offers restrooms, picnic tables, and a well maintained trail.

Bring your camera and hike the trail around sunset to get beautiful sunset shots of the valley and to see the massive sandstone walls of Kolob Canyon glow in the warm light.

Take advantage of the picnic area and restrooms in the area and enjoy one of the least explored parts of Zion while saving your legs for another great adventure in the park.

Beautiful and Easily Accessible

This was a great and easy hike to take during sunset. So beautiful with 360 views. The thing that struck me was just how easily accessible this hike was from the 15. I drive that Interstate all the time and have never stopped, this is just a quick 15 minutes from it and rest assured I will be stopping everytime from now on.
