This drive is actually on your way into the park. It goes through two tunnels, the second one is about a mile long. The views are spectacular and you should have a camera ready. There are several places to pull over for photo ops and trail heads. Always remember to carry water.

We visited Arches, Canyonlands, and Zion in one week. Zion was the most beautiful because of the ridiculously high, red cliffs and the beautiful river, but we had the worst experience there of the three. It was so crowded at Zion....think Disney. From March - October, you can only do the scenic drive on one of their shuttles, which are... More

We ended up at the far north end of Zion (off the 15) by mistake and it was well worth it. You drive to the top of the hill and then can take a short 1 mile walk out to the rim and see as far as the grand canyon. After that we headed back south and picked up the... More

My first sight of this place blew me away. Such an amazing place. Red rock, huge formations and a gorgeous drive.

The scenic drive starts at the foot of the canyon and ends where a useful road can no longer be constructed. The road goes through natural habitat and beside the river. The road is very narrow leaving plenty of natural beauty up to the side of the road. The view of the canyon walls is spectacular all the way.

What a great ride. You simply cannot look anywhere without majestic vistas of red and white rock mixed. A wonderful testament to the majesty of God in a relaxing ride.

It's well worth taking the tram through the entire Scenic Drive. You see magnificent sites and hear some of the areas history.

Beautiful to see the canyon from different perspectives and the different terrain from all angles. Just beautiful. Nothing quite like it.
