Kolob Canyon, which easily connects with The Kolob Terrace, is one of Klay Klemic’s favorite areas of Zion National Park. Not only is it only a few miles away from Rising K Ranch, but it is full of Zion’s higher elevation types of terrain, with quaking aspen tall pine, and plenty of flowing water all year long.
In Kolob Canyon, the Navajo Sandstone rises in monoliths, called “The Fingers of Kolob Canyon”, which are thousands of feet high nad bright red in color. Especially at sunset, Kolob Canyon is one of Zion’s most beautiful sights!
In Kolob Canyon, most of the hiking trails are quite short, though there are some hiking/horseback riding trails that will take you all the way to The Kolob Terrace. The nearest town is New Harmony; but you will only find an overpriced gas station there. The nearest town with any actual services is Cedar City, Utah, which has dozens of restaurants, hotels, bed and breakfasts, and other services.
