Again what views, This whole area is just fantastic. The hiking trails are easy to follow and use and the views are unreal. Not a hard hike. Make sure you have plenty of water

A perfect spot to avoid the crazy crowds on fourth of July weekend. We drove out there in the evening and found maybe four cars in the visitors center parking lot. The farther we drove, the less cars and people we ran into. Definitely worth...More

We are not hikers but the view is spectacular ! It is a short drive but worth the time to see the view. There are several hiking paths along the way.

The main part of Zion National Park has much more interesting trails with much better views. I would only come here if you feel you have done most of the trails at the main part of Zion National Park.

This 24 mile or so round trip is well worth the visit. It is located at the Northwest entrance Zion national Park. Unique rock formations. Be sure to check out the visitor center.

While the eastern side of Zion boasts white cliffs, Kolob Canyon stuns with deep red ones. Visit this side of the park too - it has just as much beauty. We did the Kolob Arch trail which is a 14 mile out and back to...More

Only a five mile scenic drive however it is spectacular! We loved the mountains and views for miles. It is a portion of Zion National Park and deserves the praise. If we'd know we could also picnic there we would've, it is beautiful.

Yes Zion Canyon is amazing and it's got the shuttles and everything else, but you can't miss this northern section of the park. It's secluded and less traveled but the views are no less amazing. We loved the hiking the trails with our young daughters.

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.
