Utah National Parks

Zion to Salt Lake City

sunny 60 °F

Today we drove the 280 some miles from Zion to the Salt Lake City airport, from which we will fly out in the morning. Still hungry for some visual stimulation from Nature's bounty, we stopped at a small part of Zion National Park called Kolob Canyons. The part of the park has some great scenery, is easily accessible from Exit 40 on I-15 and is far from the madding crowd. The Kolob Canyons, tucked into the northwest corner of Zion National Park, is the park’s best-kept secret. A half-dozen finger canyons drain west from a high plateau, offering Zion Canyon’s spectacular red-rock scenery, breathtaking views, and rainbow-tinted cliffs but no crowds. Instead, the Kolob Canyons area is a place of solitude, wilderness, and empty trails. For some peace and quiet and great hikes, this is the place to go!
