Road Trips

About KanabKanab is south of Bryce Canyon National Park and southeast of Zion National Park, a region that is exceptionally scenic. Fort Kanab was built in 1864 on the east bank of Kanab Creek for defense purposes and as a base for exploration. Native American attacks forced its abandonment in 1866, but a group of Mormon missionaries reoccupied it and founded a town in 1870.

Numerous films and TV episodes have been filmed in this region. A frequently used location is Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, a windswept area of coral-colored dunes 23 miles west of Kanab. A popular destination for ATV riders, it also offers hiking, camping and picnic facilities. The park is open daily during daylight hours; phone (435) 648-2800.
