Beautiful Drive

Great drive through beautiful canyons. Hiking trails well maintained, but only one was pet friendly. Recommend pets stay at Doggie Dude Ranch or the like.

My girlfriend and I visited Zion today expecting to be able to do a gorgeous drive through all of the different view points (as we did with black canyon and the Grand Canyon) we found that we completely missed the scenic drive because it said "tour buses only" so we kept driving. We wound up leaving the park (accidentally) completely... More

Took the scenic road in from Kanab - it was a beautiful drive. Unfortunately didn't have much time but will definitely return to explore. Saw lots of big horned sheep (careful when driving as they are often in the road.)

Wow. Drove through from east to west. Costs a little more then purchase National Park but worth it. Where do I start, don't try and pull a trailer through there if you don't have to and they may not let you. Winding roads, sheer cliffs, amazing scenery and hairpin turns make this a must to pull over to take pictures.... More

Difficult to find a parking space unless you arrive early but then there is an excellent shuttle service from Springdale and all through the park. Great scenery whilst driving but you really need to get out and explore

Couldn't take enough photos! Best shots early morning and just before dusk. Pull over where permitted for fabulous views and climbing those unusual formations for more photos. Even though I am afraid of heights (no guard rails) we drove slowly because it sure is worth the drive. The tunnel through a mountain to the other side.....wow! Look closely and you... More

My wife and I came from California to see Zion and it was fantastic to ride our motorcycles thru it. We'll be back again.

This was a great day trip, rented a car and off we went. Of course there was a little snow in the mountains that we weren't properly dressed for (shoe wise). The drive through the park was amazing, we walked for a bit and deer just stopped in front of us and ate then carried on. Even in early January... More

WOW! what a beautiful place that give you a real sense of the earth and the forces that make it. Geology in action. Take your kids!!!!! no matter their age. My only regret is that we did not make this trip when our kids were still at home. Plan several days, do the drives, buses and hikes. The horse back... More

The variations in rock, color, formations are amazing. The road, with its many hair-pin turns as the elevation changes dramatically will cause you to want to stop at every opportunity to take pictures, or just be inspired by the beauty and grandeur
