A lovely drive, with plenty of pull-outs to stop for pictures but without the crowds! Happy to find restrooms at the Reservoir.

GIven that few places can compete with Zion Canyon I can't give Kolob Terrace a 5-pip rating or recommend that you do this drive or hike in place of visiting ZC. However, I still strongly recommend you follow my path if you have multiple days...More

This is a beautiful corner of the park that is not crowded like the main section. We were the only people at most of the viewpoints. You will see an overview of the Zion canyon from afar. We were there around sunset and witnessed a...More

Lots of great hiking back here. Don't forget about it! We drove up to the place you can hike about 2 miles and see into the backside of the canyon.

Found this drive to take west of Zion park (27 miles) from Zion Camp RV. Simply remarkable!! Drive to Virgin and turn right on to Kolob Reservoir road (all paved).

As for the Kolob Terrace Road - it’s windy and scenic, and suitable for a small RV. As for the road to Lava Point, I wouldn’t recommend even a small RV on this road. It’s gravel/dusty, tight fit, with limited parking and... More
