“Driving by on I-15? Don’t Miss; Probably the Best 30 Minutes One Could Spend.”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Driving south on I-15, returning to Las Vegas after touring Zion, Bryce and Capitol Reef National Parks, on a whim we decided to check out the Kolob Canyons Road as we had a little extra time and we did not get the chance to visit this distant part of the park earlier. Wow! What a fortunate decision! The road climbs for a short distance then makes a turn to the right and an amazing view of red sandstone cliffs come into view and the views only get better as one proceeds up the remainder of the 5 mile long scenic road to the Kolob Canyons Viewpoint at the top which is sublime. Park and get out here to enjoy the cool, fresh air and get a good look at the series of narrow “finger” canyons slowly being cut back by creeks and waterfalls that flow during wet periods leaving hanging gardens and hidden valleys behind. On the return, time permitting, stop at some of the other pullouts for a look or just enjoy the beauty as you drive slowly by. At only 5 miles each way, even a quick visit is very rewarding but there are a number of trailheads along the road if you have more time and energy.

“Almost Missed it!!”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Having traveled through Zion (at the southern end), Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches and Canyonland, and having driven through routes 9, 12, 24, 95 and 191, we thought we had almost had enough. We decided to stay at Cedar City, and the next morning we took the brief detour to enter Zion again. Good Move11 Kolob Canyon is well work the trip. It has fantastic scenery.

“Majestic!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Kolob Canyon Road takes you into some of the most stunning views in Zion National Park. Make sure you have your camera ready to snap photos of the massive rock structures.

“Just drove it for the first time...”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I don't know why I waited so long. We've lived in Cedar City for 8 months now and I have driven past this exit who knows how many times. I finally drove it today. Breathtaking! I cannot wait to go back and do some more exploring on some of the trails.
