Zion National Park


Kolob Canyon is a lesser-traveled but equally stunning unit of Zion National Park located near Cedar City. Kolob Canyon features towering red rock formations and a tiny fraction of the visitors of Zion Canyon.

Kolob Canyon is relatively small and has several day hikes of varying lengths. The road leading into Kolob Canyon is beautiful in and of itself featuring a plethora of pulloffs with spectacular panoramic viewpoints.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Kolob Canyon is around sunset to watch the final light of the day sweep across the red rock  canyon.

Things to Note

Kolob Canyon is located about an hour north of the South Entrance to Zion National Park.
