The Kolob Terrace Road (Kolob Reservoir Road) is quite scenic with nice views of the western side of Zion National Park including many peaks and rock formations. It is the access road to many less crowded hikes but also worth a drive if you just...More

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
