Kodachrome Basin was named during the late 1940s by a National Geographic Society Expedition in honor of the then revolutionary Kodak film that was celebrated for its color accuracy. The park draws visitors fascinated by the area’s unusual geological forms, including a series of upright cylindrical chimneys called sand pipes. More than 60 sand pipes ranging in height from 6 to 170 feet have been identified in the park.
The must-do 2.9-mile Panorama Trail weaves through the most spectacular scenery. Several short and moderate hiking trails throughout the park take you to interesting rock formations, box canyons, and viewpoints.
