Have been to Zion on numerous occasions and have never stopped at the Kolob Canyon section between Cedar City and Saint George on Interstate 15. Had some extra time and decided to take a look. What a beautiful part of Zion. Not very crowded and you can drive in instead of taking a shuttle. About a 15 mile round trip... More

This was our 5th trip to Zion but on our previous 4 we never knew much about Kolob Canyons. So for this trip we determined this would be our main event. This was a very pleasant ride and only about 45 minutes from our motel in Springdale. It was all good road and well marked. Every time we went around... More

Kolob is a quick drive through beautiful canyons - plenty of pull outs for photo ops!! The quick hike at the top is worth it too!!

The Kolob Canyons area is one of God's best creations in southern Utah. Absolutely breathtaking views and landscapes. I walk the trails in awe!

I live close to the park only 40 miles away and visit several times a year but have mostly now restricted the visits to stormy days and off season. Too many people. I hate the shuttles but there were so many visitor if you wanted to picnic you had to pack a mile away from the grotto and walk. This... More

I took an opportunity to run up the hill into the Kolob Canyon area of Zion National Park, hoping for an opportunity to take pictures of the red rock covered with snow. I was very fortunate in my choice of day. Early on a Friday morning in March 2015 there happened to be no other person in that part of... More

In February, very few tourists - easy access and many pull offs. Great weather. Hiking is plentiful as well. Without hiking these canyons can be experienced in half a day or less. Beauty abounds.

Kolob Canyon is a must see as it's just a really beautiful area tucked away minutes from I-15 in Utah. The scenic road in is only around six miles one way, but has some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. There are lots of turnouts to stop and take in the gorgeous red canyons or take photos. There... More
