Hi, In September from Torrey we'll be driving to Zion(with stops etc on route)where we'll have the remainder of the day plus the following full day. We'll stay the 2 nights in Springdale or Hurricane. We spent one day in Zion 5 years ago just doing the short walks from the shuttl, along with the angels landing hike (only to scout lookout!) This time as well as revisiting that area again, we fancy doing the Kolob Terrace road for the views.I think it's a one hour drive one-way from Springdale? On our journey to Zion, I was wondering if we turn off highway 12 at Long Valley junction and head to I15, we could visit the Kolob Canyon viewpoint. Would this take a lot longer than just carrying on the 89 and then turning on to the 9? Is it worth the detour? I'd read about a trail called Northgate Peaks if we have a couple of hours spare. Thanks for any help to make the most of our short time here. We're both fit and active but I know it'll be hot!
