This is not near the other areas of Zion National Park, but it is worth the visit. The 5 mile dead end road that starts just off I-15 is not too difficult & has fantastic scenery. Don't miss this when you come to Zion National...More

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 the canyon walls in Zion Canyon seem to...More

The spectacular drive up Kolobs Canyon is only 5 miles long (each way) so cruise slowly and use every turnout. Once you stop - and now the driver can look around too -- beauty is in all directions. The scenery is spectacular in both directions,...More

A short drive to reach the overlook of this beautiful canyon area and not the crowds of the main part of Zion makes this a dream come true. It's a well maintained paved road with spots to pull over, gaze and take pictures. Clean vault...More

This is a nice winding road up to an overlook. There were no crowds. The Kolob Canyon is beautiful and amazing! Well worth the drive.

My favorite part of this drive is plenty of places to pull over for photos. Went early in the morning weekday, so very little traffic. Great views.

Less traffic, quieter trails. Beautiful panoramic views at the trail that is at the end of the road. Worth the trip

This is a trip that no one that's coming to this area should miss. It was so amazing. The weather was absolutely perfect and the sites were unbelievable. I traveled through mountains comma Meadows, farmlands, and ended up at the end of the road at...More

Kolob is a Mormon name, referring to the closest residence to God's home and the vistas here can indeed be heavenly. This is a short, 5-mile drive off I-15, where just less than an hour sidetrip will suffice -- unless you want to do some...More

Yes you could use the 5 Mile Road with your RV. At the end you have plenty of space to turn around. It's a dead end road. But there's no Lake at all... :)
