We spent about 2 hours just driving the 5 miles of winding road. Every corner holds a new awesome view. Don't hurry, all there is at the end is a turnaround. But this truly is the journey is the important part not the destination.

This is a brown colored but well maintained winding road into the lesser know northwest section of Zion National Park, called Kolob Canyon....following picturesque Taylor Creek and the saw-toothed peaks eroded from the sandstone remains of a 180-190 milliion year old Jurassic era beach. You see, while most folks visit and remember Zion's Main Canyon (the one with the mandatory... More

Spent two days in the park, including the Narrows, and looking for something a bit different. We researched Kolob Canyons and spent better part of a day there on Taylor Creek and the Canyon Overlook trails. Enjoyed both of them. watched a storm roll in from the Canyon Overlook Trail. Easy access, no crowds and well paved road and trail... More

This Canyon cannot be accessed directly from Zion Canyon, You have to drive several miles to this Northern section. Don't miss this less visited side of the park. The scenery is beautiful and if you look closely you might see wild turkey.

It's very close to I-15 and I was glad I took the time to drive through. It was an excellent introduction to Zion.

We took a drive here in the late afternoon. The terrain differs a bit from Zion and at the end of the route there was a lake. We did a lot of driving this vacation, so in retrospect I didn't think it was worth spending more time in the car to do this route. ( Hiking here might be better,... More

If you don't want to brave the crowds, or just want to bite off a smaller piece of the park for a day, enter through the northern Kolob Canyon and take the 5 mile drive. Maybe not as varied as views in the main canyon, but still pretty awesome. Plenty of trailheads originate here too. Tiny visitor center and bathrooms... More

We did not hike the trails. We drove and stopped for pictures 3 times on the road. The views from the road are amazing. We almost didn't go in because there is nothing impressive at the entrance of the park. Once you drive up the canyon and around the bend. Wow! We did this on the way home after a... More

More beautiful Zion roads! Different landscape than the southern part of the park. Great train at the end.

On Jan. 15, we were on our way through Cedar City on our way to Las Vegas. After four days visiting Zion (south), Bryce Canyou, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and Arches National Parks, we enjoyed the interlude in our day's drive. Turned out to be much more that a mere interlude. We enjoyed the very scenic road that traverses the western... More
