We decided to make the drive through Koloa Canyons not knowing what to expect. We were first pleased that there were almost no other cars. Then the views were spectacular! We planned on driving to Lava Point Overlook, but the road was closed shortly after...More

We stopped by Kolob after spending the previous day in the bigger part of Zion. We were a bit disappointed with how small this part of the park was, but the views were definitely impressive. There were only about 3 trail heads, at least that...More

We have driven right by this gorgeous place on I-15 more times than I can count. A friend we were with suggested that we stop and take a short hike at the end. It is totally worth the 1-2 hour stop. The scenery is stunning....More

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.

my husband and I are traveling LasVegas to Denver Feb. 16. I would like to see the beauty of Zion or Kolob Canyon than from Interstate. Is the Kolob Canyon Rd safe that time of yr? And how much time would we need to expect just to drive thru? Any other suggestions for a short side trip would be greatly appreciated!
