I took the hike to Kolob Arch. The trail was scenic and I noticed only a few people along the way. Toward the end of the trail I had some trouble finding my way on the trail and took a few wrong turns but I made it to the Arch and love the views. Along the way back I noticed... More

The drive out there is amazingly beautiful! There are a few different hiking trails which are easily located and vary in length/difficulty. When you 1st arrive you must check in at the visitor's center. They are very helpful and will provide any info you request. A must do if you're passing by on Hwy 15! Once you're on the scenic...

Kolob Canyon is part of Zion National Park but is a bit out of the way from the main visited areas.it is about a 50 minute drive from Zion and fantastic. We did the Taylor Creek hike and it defies words. You walk through small streams and end up at a magnificent semi circle of striated red stone. High canyons... More

Easy to miss - the inconspicuous exit passes you on the I-15 on the way to Zion from Salt Lake City. I did a day trip combining Kolob Cyn with Kolob Terrace road. Don't miss the short hike from the parking lot. The views of the canyon and forest are spectacular.

I have been to Zion National Park several times and it is absolutely stunning, but I had never been to the Kolob section before because it is at a different entrance to the park. We decided to try it out and it was so worth it! There were hardly any other people there which is the peak of summer was... More

While most folks visit and remember Zion's Main Canyon (the one with the mandatory shuttle buses in the Spring and Summer) for its absolutely breathtaking and dizzying steep walls, viewed from the bottom, unless you want to climb and hike up to the rim ....there is another LESSER KNOW NORTH-WESTERN SECTION to Zion National Park. That is, YOU CAN VISIT... More

The Lee's Pass trail is awesome for horse riding or for hiking. The trail is well marked and well structured and will handle both hikers and horses. With a horse, you can ride all the way to Hop Valley (my personal favorite place to ride in the world!) or you can just go up the canyon and enjoy LaVerkin creek... More

A lot of reviews here seem to come from people in their cars which is an odd way to review a Canyon, but to each their own. A group of 3 of us hiked in at Lee Pass and spent 2 nights camping along the La Verkin Creek Trail at designated campsites. The sights we hiked to off the main... More

This was our first hike of the trip and we saw a rattle snake on our way in, and a deer and its baby on the way out! A lovely hike (Taylor Creek Fork) crossing and re-crossing the creek multiple times, passing some charming old cabins and ending up in a beautiful double arch. Uncrowded and peaceful.

We drove through this northwest area of Zion on our way headed south, before entering from the west. We were in a bit of a hurry so just did the relatively short drive from that visitor's center. Can't comment on hiking there, scenery was pretty, but I think the main canyon and entry from the east part of the park... More
