It was $30 to drive the 5 Miles, and it was worth it. We met wonderful couples enjoying it with us but it was not crowded.

This is not near the other areas of Zion National Park, but it is worth the visit. The 5 mile dead end road that starts just off I-15 is not too difficult & has fantastic scenery. Don't miss this when you come to Zion National...More

The spectacular drive up Kolobs Canyon is only 5 miles long (each way) so cruise slowly and use every turnout. Once you stop - and now the driver can look around too -- beauty is in all directions. The scenery is spectacular in both directions,...More
