Based on some of the reviews, some people are confusing this with the Kolob Canyon entrance to Zion NP off of highway 15. Kolob Terrace Road is off of state road 9 in Virgin, UT. It is only marked by a street sign and easy to miss if not looking for it. We went on a weekend to avoid the... More

Felt like we were on Mars while driving through this road. Weird and beautiful! Bring a lot of water as it can be hot, and note the construction delay. The road is opened after 4 pm, but you need to wait for and follow the pilot truck.

If you want to see as much of Zion by vehicle as possible, Kolob Terrace Road is a must. The road winds along precipitous cliff ridges, through surreal forests, and through alpine meadows with gorgeous canyon views. Drive in the morning or evening for the most beautiful light. The road also provides access to the Subway and Wildcat trailheads.

Enjoyed a wonderful outdoor wedding on Kolob Terrace Road. The views were unbelievable! What a backdrop for a wedding! There were places for campers along the way. Watch out for cows and jack rabbits crossing the road...they take their time crossing (another photo op). No guard rails and steep drop in some areas.

This is almost 40 miles from Zion Visitor Center. The freeway speeds are higher there, so will not take much time once you hit I-15. The views from the road are good. But the road itself is not too long, so OK for a quick visit in the evening. The trail to natural bridge is like 14 miles and we... More

We enjoyed this drive, but might have enjoyed it a bit more if we had the Zion brochure which is received at the entrance to the Park which we had not visited prior to taking this drive. It was a nice "preview" to Zion Canyon itself.

Took the motorcycle up to Kolob Reservoir yesterday. The meadows, canyons and rock formations are stunning. This is a constant climb from Virgin, topping out at over 8,000 ft and a slow go due to narrow and twisting road. Speed limit is 35, so don't plan on a quick run. Most of the road is open year round but about... More

We went to Kolob Terrace Road as a break from the crowds in the Canyon. The gentle Northgate Peaks Trail was also an attraction. It is a beautiful trail through meadows and forests to an overlook toward Zion Canyon. A great spot to eat your lunch. After the hike keep on driving to Lava Point, Edge of the Plateau for... More

Nice Camping around the lake. Good Fishing. Beautiful part of Zion National Park. Some of the roads in this area are Dirt and not suitable for nice cars; trucks and SUV's should do fine. Most cars should stay on the paved roads.

Well worth the drive. We didn't hike up there, but the drive was very nice. There are mountains and meadows, deer and cattle (on the road). The reservoir at the end wasn't worth the drive, though.
