Kolob Canyons, part of Zion National Park, is a true wilderness area. Located in the northwest part of Zion, Kolob Canyons is the most remote, and least visited, section of Zion National Park. In Kolob Canyons, you get the opportunity to see all that Zion has to offer--arches, waterfalls, slot canyons, winding hiking trails--without the crowds you'll find in other areas. Kolob Canyons also has a couple of relatively untraveled scenic routes.
Getting to the Kolob Canyons area is simple: Take Exit 40 off Interstate 15. The Kolob Canyons Visitor Center is at the entrance to the area. The center has an information desk staffed by a park ranger, a bookstore, and interpretive exhibits. Note that the center does not have services. Also, you'll need to stop and pay a Zion park entrance fee. In addition, if you plan on doing any backcountry camping, you'll need to pay a daily fee (typically, $5/day).
