Deep in the backcountry of the northwestern section of Zion National Park, Kolob Arch is a natural wonder that’s worth the all day hike. Spanning 287 ft. Kolob Arch is the world’s second longest naturally occurring arch—and only three feet shorter than Landscape Arch at Arches National Park. The arch is an iconic symbol of the park that encapsulates its rugged beauty, although reaching the arch requires 14 miles of hiking through isolated wilderness.  Despite the length of the total journey—which can often take up to 12 hours—the hike to the arch is a revered pilgrimage for backcountry enthusiasts and hikers.  Should you choose to hike to Kolob Arch, be sure to pack along plenty of water and be comfortable with hiking at the high altitude. The trailhead begins over 6,000 feet, and spring and fall are the best months for comfort and milder weather.

Practical Info

To reach the trailhead for Kolob Arch, take Exit 40 from Interstate 15 and travel 4.1 miles on Kolob Canyons Road until you reach the Lees Pass parking lot. There is an alternate, albeit lesser used, trailhead that departs from Hop Valley, although both trails require seven miles of hiking to reach the famous arch.
