Kolob Canyon of Zion

Categories: Southern Utah Travel

You’ve all seen pictures of Zion National Park, thousands of them actually. But there are seperate parts of Zion Canyon that not everyone knows about, that offers a different view, a different beauty that can inspire and excite.

This image was taken from one of those places, specifically just off of the Kolob Terrace road that is part of the Kolob Canyon section of Zion Park. You’ve got to do a little bit of a mountain hike to capture this image, but in truth it’s just off the road.

There really is a lot to see and do in this area of Zion. Some of the views that overlook Zion from above are some of the most picturesque in all of southern Utah. That of course is in my humble opinion, but images like these begin to back up my point.

You can find the road to get here just outside of of Springdale on the road that goes to Kolob Reservoir. It’s also the same road that you take to get to the Subway trailhead.

The main section of Kolob Canyon is accessed off of I 15 between Cedar City and St George, in fact you can’t miss it as there are signs along the freeway telling you where to turn. Within this pay section of Kolob (your Zion pass works at both places) you’ll be able to see the Fingers of Kolob Canyon, you’ll also be able to do some great hikes like Taylor Creek that gets you to the Double Alcove.
