“A relatively easy run up one of Kolob Canyon's mesmerizing finger canyons.”— Tom Robson
Although beautiful, this is one of the less-photogenic run's in the park. However, Double Arch Alcove is without a doubt a worthy destination.
The trail passes the geologic formation of the Kanarraville Fold and two historic homestead cabins built in the early 1930's. The vertical walls of Tucupit and Paria tower 1700 feet above the trail as runners arrive at the Double Arch Alcove.
The cliffs of Zion stand resolute, a glowing presence in late day, a wild calm. Melodies of waters soothe desert-parched ears, streams twinkle over stone, wren song cascades from red rock cliffs, cottonwood leaves jitter on the breeze. But when lightning flashes water falls erupt from dry cliffs, and floods flash down waterless canyons exploding log jams, hurling boulders, croaking wild joyousness, and dancing stone and water and time. Zion is alive with movement, a river of life always here and always changing.
