TAYLOR CREEK – MIDDLE FORK – KOLOB CANYONS
TAYLOR CREEK MIDDLE FORK, Kolob Canyons, UT
Difficulty Level: Moderate
Distance: 5 miles round-trip
The Middle Fork of Taylor Creek Trail is a scenic easy trail that is great for Spring, Summer, and Fall, but may closed during the snow season. The trail is a single track through the woods that features a couple of old ranchers’ cabins and a cool, shady alcove at the end of the hike. This hike is family friendly but could get a little long for kids that are not used to walking longer distances. Overall a great hike, and perfect for beating the summer heat!
