If it's on your way, this is a nice little drive to take. Not crowded. Limited hikes. Better time to go is in the afternoon for pictures. In the morning, you are going to be shooting your pictures in to the sun.

Kolob Canyons is a beautiful little excursion right off of I-15. Stop at the visitors center and show your National Parks pass (or pay a small fee-- maybe $25 per car?) As you drive up the beautiful red dirt road, the views are simply amazing!...More

Kolob is so often overlooked, but during the crowded summer months, I definitely think it's worth a stop. There are very few people there, compared to the main park, and the scenic drive is beautiful. There's an easy trail at the end of the road...More

A perfect spot to avoid the crazy crowds on fourth of July weekend. We drove out there in the evening and found maybe four cars in the visitors center parking lot. The farther we drove, the less cars and people we ran into. Definitely worth...More

We are not hikers but the view is spectacular ! It is a short drive but worth the time to see the view. There are several hiking paths along the way.

There's a visitors center at the entrance to Kolob Canyon where you're supposed to pay a fee if you don't have an annual pass.
