The took this scenic 6 mile drive today and I am so glad we did. The views rival Zion any day. Wonderful. There are pull-outs all the way along, and there are conveniences in the Visitor's Centre and at the top of the mountain drive.

Kolob Canyon is not like the main Zion canyon. It is beautiful red rock faces that are best viewed and photographed in the afternoon. There are short hikes, long hikes or no hikes if you just want to drive the short road out and back....More

This is a beautiful view off from I15. Take exit 42 and head up the winding road to see beautiful views of Kolob Canyon and take a few minutes to enjoy the view from the turn around.

Would agree with the other travelers on October (would say mid to late). We were there in mid sept and they were just starting to turn - although it was still very beautiful.

It's an 8 or so mile hike from the trailhead, which is a few miles from the park entrance. It's pretty much a full day to see Kolob Arch.

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.
