Decided to give this drive a try since I saw some beautiful pictures on Pinterest. My family and I were not disappointed at all!

This is part of Zion National Park but it is in a separate location than the canyon. It requires about a 45-minute drive to get to, some along the interstate, where the speed limit is 80 mph. (Gotta love Utah!) This road offers some spectacular views, rivaling anything Zion Canyon offers, and access to hiking trails. An easy hiking trail,... More

We decided to take a pit stop off the freeway to see this section of Zion since we were passing by. It is really beautiful! I'm not sure I would drive all the way up from the main Zion canyon (we were considering that when we were there in June) as it is a brief drive with similar views, but... More

Visit this first if possible, as it won't feel as special after you've seen the Kolob Terrace and/or the main Zion Canyon, especially if you're coming from the North (e.g. Salt Lake city), as this is actually on your way to the South entrance.

This trip is well worth the drive for the beautiful views and enjoying Zion National Park's less crowded side. At the top are wonderful vistas so take the time to see this whether you only view it from your car, or enjoy hiking.

Drive this easy five miles from I-15 to the top of Kolob Canyon in the afternoon as the sun is not your friend in the morning. It will take a couple of hours, without hiking, to enjoy the various viewpoints. Very few people here compared to Zion, so there is less of a hassle to park and view. Benches are... More

Just off I-15 Kolob Canyons is well worth the extra time. It is an easy drive to the top and there are lots of look out points to stop and take pics. There are also places to stop for walking/hiking. Restrooms at the top. An easy breezy half day driving excursion from Zion with a tenth of the crowds.

A short detour from I-15, this is an amazing sight. We had an annual parks pass so the cost was not a factor. It is DEFINITELY worth the time, but $25 is a lot to pay for an hour of beautiful vistas if you are from the west. (We are spoiled by natural beauty all the time.) If you are... More

The Kolob Canyon Road is a scenic drive of 5 miles each way with many pull offs. The views although stunning are of the same rock face at each stop. The road is in great shape and has easy access from I15. Be aware that if you are using it as a break from driving the cost if you don't... More
