Lots of great hiking back here. Don't forget about it! We drove up to the place you can hike about 2 miles and see into the backside of the canyon.

Found this drive to take west of Zion park (27 miles) from Zion Camp RV. Simply remarkable!! Drive to Virgin and turn right on to Kolob Reservoir road (all paved).

As for the Kolob Terrace Road - it’s windy and scenic, and suitable for a small RV. As for the road to Lava Point, I wouldn’t recommend even a small RV on this road. It’s gravel/dusty, tight fit, with limited parking and... More
