    Kolob Canyon is the northwest corner of Zion National Park, with its own access point. Much smaller than the main part of Zion, it seems to be much lesser known, but is every bit as spectacular. While...  more »

    Kolob Canyons road is located in the northwest part of Zion park. There are not nearly as many visitors in this section, but the scenery is still awesome. The five mile drive offers many viewpoints to...  more »

    While not nearly as popular as the main part of Zion, the Kolob section is still pretty cool. There are some short hikes, or some long backpacking hikes that will go all the way across into Zion. Even if you just do the 5 mile drive to the top, it is worth it.

    Awesome 5.5 mile drive with multiple lookouts. Conveniently located just off I-15 in southwest Utah. Good for quick 1 hour drive thru, or all day on their many trails.

    Zions without the horrendous crowds! I found my group completely alone while hiking in a canyon here, a rare thing in Zion National Park. There is also a beautiful steep rock climbing area here called the namaste wall that is worth checking out.

    The least visited part of Zion. Absolutely beautiful and peaceful. That afternoon rustic golden glow is amazing!

    Very pretty views, especially early or late in the day. Great hiking trails. Not as crowded. Leave your dog at home unless you only plan on driving around. No dogs allowed on any hiking trails. :-(

Where to stay in Zion National Park

If you want to stay inside Zion National Park, you can choose from three campgrounds or the Zion Lodge, which includes motel rooms, cabins, suites, and a restaurant. Two of the campgrounds sit near the south entrance, while the third lies more isolated about a one-hour drive from Zion Canyon along the Kolob Terrace Road. The gateway town of Springdale just south of the park has a wide range of accommodations. Choose from cozy inns and bed and breakfasts, rustic riverside lodges, and clean and simple motels. If everything's full here, try the nearby towns of Virgin and Hurricane.
