We recently had the experience of being able to do the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive in our own car in the off-season. Zion Canyon is closed to private vehicles during the Spring/Summer season which usually begins mid-March and runs through the end of October because of the mandatory shuttle system which runs through the park during that time.

It is a short walk with nice places to take photo. My kids found some new places to climb and even some fresh snow spots to leave their names on it.

Zion National Park is unlike any other place. Massive sandstone cliffs carved out by the Virgin River with tall trees and lots of wild animals makes for a beautiful drive and sight seeing.

This definitely features among the top 5 picturesque drives in all the US National Parks. While some of it is closed to private vehicles during most of the year when the Park shuttles are running, but it is open to private vehicles for a short period during winter months and that is an opportunity not to be missed, with the...

One of the beautiful scenic drives I have ever experienced. Southern Utah is beautiful with so many national parks and so much to see and do. We go there every year now because we keep finding new things to explore!

The senior pass is only $10 and it covers you and up to three others in your car and the pass is good at all National Parks! I paid $20 for a day pass at the kiosk, stopped at the welcome center, showed my pass and received the senior pass and $10 back. You can also order a pass on... More

A beautiful drive with lots of picturesque spots. Plenty of places to pull off the road and go on short hike. Saw mountain goats right on the side of the road. Take your time and take in the natural beauty of the towering cliffs, the wildlife and floral displays.

Lots of opportunities to take beautiful pictures and observe wildlife. While on the scenic drive, we saw mountain goats run up the steep mountains which was amazing. Many trails to choose from ranging from beginner to expert and rangers are always gojng around the trails so you can easily ask for help. Rangers are nice enough to let you take... More
