Zion National Park - Kolob Canyons

It’s a pretty short run from Cedar Breaks to Upper Zion National Park, Kolob Canyons.  Only about 40 miles back out to Cedar City and then south on Highway 15.  There is an exit on the freeway and a left under the highway takes you right to the nice little visitor’s center.  Pardon me for not putting in entry prices along throughout the trip but I bought the Golden Age Pass last year and now I just flash the card to get free for the rest of my life.  (One of the greatest benefits of making it this far in my life.)

 

First impression of Kolob Canyons?  The red road is pretty!  What can I say, I have always seen asphalt colored black.  Here they use a brick colored rock. It really is pretty. 

 

A five mile scenic drive takes you along where you can look east at the canyons and beautiful arches, cliffs and formations. There are trails that begin here and allow hikers to head into the Park.  The trails are at least two hours in length and one is 14 miles so overnight camping along the trail may be needed.  The scenic drive ends at an elevated parking area facing the huge cliffs at the edge of the Upper Kolob Plateau.  This would be a particularly impressive sight at sunset. We were there earlier in the day and it was still quite nice.
