Lava Point

Zion National Park


Lava Point is best spot in Zion National Park to watch a sunset. Located in the Kolob Terrace section of the park, this lesser-visited destination is worth a stop.

Escape the crowds here with a very different kind of beauty than the red rock canyons. This overlook does not require any sort of a hike and is situated next to our favorite campground in Zion National Park, Lava Point Campground.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Lava Point is sunset when beautiful golden, orange, and red light bathes the distant rock formations in glory.

Things to Note

The parking lot for the trailhead is small and parking in the surrounding area is extremely limited.
