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

This is well worth the time and effort to pull off I 15 and make the 6 mile journey, that delivers one wow after another. The mountain vistas are dramatic and breath taking. We will be back!

Was very nice and worth the drive up here since the main area at Zion was rather busy out here there were only a few other people around and the short hike out to the lookout was met with only two other people, so that was a huge plus. We hiked out for the sunset and later the moonrise was... More

From the highway, the sign read, "Scenic Road to Zion." Since my next destination was Zion, i took the exit. The road does not lead into Zion National Park but rather a 12 mile loop into one of the branches of Zion. since I had made the choice to get off, I took the Kolob Canyon Drive. I was NOT... More

It's a beautiful drive and doesn't take long, but it is a way from the main part of the park. We hiked the Timber Creek Trail, which is easy. Stop and take lots of pictures!

We drove the road after 4 PM & there were few people in this part of the park. It is a beautiful drive on a very good road with many places to pull off the road. We hiked to the overlook at the end of the road. Excellent.

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
