If it's on your way, this is a nice little drive to take. Not crowded. Limited hikes. Better time to go is in the afternoon for pictures. In the morning, you are going to be shooting your pictures in to the sun.

Kolob is so often overlooked, but during the crowded summer months, I definitely think it's worth a stop. There are very few people there, compared to the main park, and the scenic drive is beautiful. There's an easy trail at the end of the road...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.
