Lots of great hiking back here. Don't forget about it! We drove up to the place you can hike about 2 miles and see into the backside of the canyon.

As for the Kolob Terrace Road - it’s windy and scenic, and suitable for a small RV. As for the road to Lava Point, I wouldn’t recommend even a small RV on this road. It’s gravel/dusty, tight fit, with limited parking and... More
