We drove this road as we were connecting to another route and were really pleased we did. What a dramatic roadway including a tunnel

This road is one you need to take just for the scenery. This is the way in through the Eastern entrance, on Route 9. We saw mountain sheep, and fabulous rock formations. It also has a tunnel, though that in itself is not an attraction...More

This is a great day trip from Vegas. We rented a Shelby Mustang from Hertz and had a blast drive through the park. We didn't take in any hiking as it was 109 degrees the day we visited. The views and formations are beautiful. There...More

Beautiful ride! While Zion is famous for the scenic drive i the main canyon (which during the high season can only be done by shuttle), this is an amazing scenic drive. From the eastern park entrance, where you hit the famous red paving, through the...More

Many RV's for sure. There is a tunnel so you might want to check height restrictions. I don't recall the max. Visitors center has lots of parking but even on a week day in late Oct it was almost full. I can't imagine what it... More
