Group Size Limits
Large groups result in larger impacts. Trails in the Zion Wilderness have a group size limit in order to help protect the wilderness character of the area. Group size limits are strictly enforced. Groups are limited to a maximum of 12 people that share the same affiliation (e.g., school, club, scout group, colleagues, family, friends, or a combination thereof).
Fill your water bottle at the Kolob Canyons Visitor Center. Restroom facilities are located at the Kolob Canyons Visitor Center and pit toilets are located at the Taylor Creek Trailhead, South Fork parking lot, and at the Kolob Canyons Viewpoint. Always use the restroom before hiking. If you are on the trail, be prepared to pack out human waste, toilet paper, diapers, and hygiene products. Human waste disposal bags are highly recommended to transport solid waste. Please follow Leave No Trace principles while in the park.
These are not loop hikes. Roundtrip distances are listed for out-and-back trips. Hikers do not need to travel the full distance, they can turn around at any point and return the way they came. Overnight trips require a wilderness permit.
