Kolob Terrace Road is one of the most scenic drives of southern Utah. You don't want to be in a rush because it twists and turns and has some steep areas, but it's all paved. We have done several of the hikes along the way and there were no crowds but well maintained trails and restrooms were very clean. At... More

This road is about 20 miles long ending at a reservoir - bring along fishing gear if you have the time. You go in and out of the national park along this drive but it is very scenic and enjoyable! Plus there were few cars travelling it as well.

The view from Lava Point is so totally different from what you see in Zion Canyon and the drive is very interesting with several different environments. The view is also different from Kolob Canyon which is also well worth the visit.

Another way to enjoy the beauty of Zion National Park. In this part of the park there are no entrance fees! You are on the top of the canyon looking down, where in the main entrance near Springdale, Utah you are in the bottom of the canyon looking up. Great hikes off Kolob Terraces Road but if you continue to... More

On a suggestions from a friend, we drove up Kolob Terrace Road from Virgin, UT to the Kolob reservoir. It was a beautiful drive with almost no traffic. National Park road sections were maintained better than local roads (you drive in and out of the park on this road). The beautiful vistas are so peaceful. When we got to the... More

If you have a couple of hours take this drive towards Kolob Reservoir. Just before you get to the reservoir you will see a turn out for Lava Point Overlook, don't miss it. This is the best overlook on this road. You will be on a narrow dirt road but there are wide spots in case you meet someone. The... More

Quite and beautiful. 50 miles round trip drive with spectacular view! The scenery gets more spectacular the higher up the mountain you go.

We drove down this road and saw some really nice scenery. We turned down one road and at the end of it is a campground and an overlook. You can see lava overflow and the Zion National Park plateau. At the end of the road is a reservoir. It was a really nice drive.

The farther you go on this road the more beautiful the views become. The air also cools as you gain altitude. Pull off at one of the vista points and just drink in the sights.

Gorgeous open space and tons of dirt roads to roam around. It's free and a good place to take your pup since Zion hates dawgs. Shoutout to Rigo from the pub in Zion for the suggestion 😉
