Maps and Travel Guides

The best things in life come in threes, like “The Godfather” movies, the Musketeers, and the Stooges. Just like these icons, Zion National Park has three sections: Kolob Canyons, Kolob Terrace, and the main Canyon. Sections are defined by the road access to them. All sections of the park require visitors to have a park pass even if you don’t go through a checkpoint.

These virtual and interactive maps and travel guides provides users with a 360-degree augmented reality experience of Zion National Park while highlighting different areas such as Highway 9, the Canyon Overlook, Big Bend and the West Rim Trail. With the stunning imagery paired with insightful information about the trails, what you’ll see and the park’s history, it’s truly the next best thing to being there in person.

Kolob Terrace

The location of the famous Subway Hike, Kolob Terrace is accessible from Highway 9 via the Kolob Terrace Road just after you pass the small town of Virgin. Most of the hiking trails in this region are longer backcountry hikes that are best suited for more advanced hikers with wayfinding skills. The scenic drive is a breathtaking experience especially during fall colors when the Quaking Aspens turn to gold.

Kolob Canyons

This upper section of Zion is sometimes referred to as Kolob Fingers due to the shape of the canyons resembling some colossus hand dragging through the region and leaving the canyons carved behind the fingers. Access to this collection of short canyons is off of Interstate 15 at exit 40. Kolob Arch and the scenic lookout from the end of the road are the highlights of this section of Zion. Stop by the small visitor center at the entrance to purchase/show your park pass and ask the rangers any questions you have.

Zion/Main Canyon

Finally, the main and most popular section of the park is accessed from Highway 9 heading east from St. George. Because of how popular this section is, it is the only part of the park that runs a shuttle to accommodate more visitors at one time. Two of the country’s most popular hikes (Angels Landing & The Narrows) can be found in the main canyon along with many other incredible trails. The visitor center and the museum offer in-depth information on the region and history of Zion National Park.  etc.
