Opportunity to stop on the drive down if you wanted but even in May was getting busy. The rocks as you enter the park from the Death Valley route are simply amazing. I would have liked to have taken a hike here but road too busy to stop.

I was in awe when I entered the park from the east. The sight are amazing. This place is great for young and old to enjoy. I had planned a quick drive through but spent two days there.

Very nice short hike. It's about one mile out and back to get to the beautiful view of the Zion Canyon.

We drove over from Las Vegas about 3 hours to get there, it is a 12 mile drive thru Zion but it was well worth it.

This is, in my opinion, one of the best 30 min drives you will ever do in your lifetime. Tunnels, switchbacks, drop offs what more could you ask for.

Going through the heart of the mountain in a pitch black tunnel is a magnificient experience. We almost turned around so we could do it again!

If you take the road through the park, you will not be allowed to drive where the shuttle goes and you will miss some views, so definitely do not skip the shuttle. However, you can drive through the park on route 9. I did both the shuttle and the full drive through the park. I was very lucky to arrive... More

Awe inspiring views. Pictures just don't do this park justice. Drive to see half the park and you have to shuttle to see the other half. Amazing 1930's 1.1 mile mountain tunnel. Great hikes, biking, or casual walks, this park is as easy as it is beautiful.

Zion is one of Utah's busiest national park and because of that, there is a mandatory shuttle system on the scenic drive through the park. It runs frequently and there is a narration that plays during the drive telling you about the scenery and the upcoming stop. The shuttle runs frequently and so when you get off to take a... More
