So amazing. Read the history before going through. Have patience and take it slow. Views are worth it.

A great scenic drive into Zion National Park. Keep an eye out for the beautiful rock formations and the big horn sheep that climb the rocks or are by the roadside.

This road is a feat of American ingenuity and must be witnessed. Be prepared to hang onto your seat as you climb, climb, climb and go through the mile long tunnel. Hopefully the bighorn sheep will be awaiting you on the other side (they hang...More

Best HWY in the US. I love driving through the tunnels to get through to the back side of the Zion entrance. It beautiful and stunning. You'll want to have your camera out the entire trip!

Traveling from Bryce in to Zion. Great drive! Zion and drive in is just majestic. Only reason i didn't rate it a five is it can be a little crowded, but worth it.

If you're coming from Bryce Canyon, this is the route to take for beautiful scenery. The mile long tunnel is fun but if you have a camper you may need to wait for a special escort through it. We were in a large van and...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

Glad you got to see the park, as it is so overcrowded thanks to Utah over branding it, very soon you will have to make reservations to see it...too bad, Zion is lost
