Golden Gate Park... San Francisco, CA...

San Francisco's 5 most scenic parks

Zion, UT check out Kolob Canyons. This lesser-known paradise in Zion’s northwest corner (about 25 miles north on U.S. 15 from the Zion turnoff at Toquerville) remains open to private vehicles. Chug up Kolob Canyons Road, which snakes between sandstone cliffs and gains 1,000 feet of elevation in 5 miles. From the summit, hike the Timber Creek Overlook Trail, a moderate 1-mile round-trip with an eagle’s perspective of Kolob’s finger canyons—each a mini Zion
