This is a less traveled road in Zion but just as beautiful and impressive as the rest of the park. There are plenty of opportunities to stop and go for a hike in this natural wonder. We visited Hop Valley and kept cool by wading down the river. We also kept stopping and taking in both the amazing scenery and... More

When you start out on this road, it's pretty but doesn't seem special. Give it five minutes and you'll change your mind! The scenery gets more spectacular the higher up the mountain you go. At a few points it seems like you can see forever. You're high in the mountains but this is a drive that those who are afraid... More

The road was under construction so was closed until 4:00. We were there at 4:05 and so glad we had waited for it to open. We had to have "pilot" car at times to take us through the construction. The road was about 20 miles long and some of it was in Zion Park and some private land. It went... More

Kolob Terrace Road originates about 20 miles West of Springdale. The road leads to the Kolob Reservoir, which offers fishing and some boating. The road runs through absolutely stunning scenery that concludes with an overlook from which you look down over the Zion Canyon. There are also several trailheads that originate from the road. You need not hike to enjoy... More

First, check for road closures on the web since there is ongoing construction. Early risers will have no problem as long as they don't begin their return until after 4PM. On weekends the road is open all day. This road leads to the popular Subway trailhead. You'll need a permit to negotiate this entire trail, though some just hike part... More

This road is RED, and there are very interesting views to see during the drive. Keep you eyes out for different plant life, as well. Don't bother with the reservoir at the end, it truly is small and not worth the time.

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.
