The showcase of this trail is Kolob Arch, a 310-foot span sitting 700 feet above the canyon floor. The trail makes a long day hike or a great overnight backpacking trip. Overnight hikers can camp at one of the 15 designated campsites along the trail (permit required for overnight hikes). The hike begins at the Lee Pass Trailhead, located four miles up the Kolob Canyons Scenic Drive from the visitor center. The last two miles of the path before the spur trail to the arch parallel LaVerkin Creek, offering numerous swimming holes where hikers can cool off during the summer. An alternate route to the arch is via Hop Valley, whose trailhead is along the Kolob Terrace Road originating in the town of Virgin.
