While we love the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon, there was something so incredibly special and beautiful about Zion that words cannot describe. We chose to drive through rather than take the shuttle and that worked out fine. We would have liked to spend more time there but a thunderstorm hit and we decided to head to the next stop... More

This free shuttle service within Zion would be my recommendation if you have limited time here. It makes frequent stops along the scenic drive allowing you the opportunity get off and do a hike or just stay on board and watch it all through the shuttle windows. Plus It runs frequently. More than likely you won't wait more than a... More

To avoid problems with parking, traffic, pollution, and major congestion, the Zion National Park asks visitors to park their cars at the designated free Zion Park Shuttle pick up and car parking areas, located outside of the scenic canyon area. This is a good and workable solution to what years ago was a major problem and a growing automobile exhaust... More

Breathtaking stunning views are to be found in this location. We didn't do any of the trails due to time, but the scenic drive was fantastic. A little scary at times when wild animals dart out in front of the vehicle on the corner on a 200 foot plus drop, but it's all part of the excitement. Definitely worth a... More

If you have to go from Lake Powell to Vegas (or viceversa) make sure to pass through Zion! This is one of the most scenic routes I have ever driven! The landscape is stunning (you will stop almost every turn to take pictures) and you can even spot wild animals just a few meters from you! Amazing!! Absolutely recommended!!

It is gorgeous. The red rocks and the river is beauty of nature. They also have wonderful ranger programs.

Park the car, jump on the regular if not un air conditioned shuttle buses (sit at the front by the window) and then chose when and where to walk. Great half day out off the road on our month long road trip and a nice surprise we didn't have planned. Shorter walks for up to an hour combined with the... More

The shuttle bus, bus driver, and taped script are great guides to some of the greatest scenery in the world. The Zion Canyon Scenic Drive is like you are driving a car through the Grand Canyon rather than taking a raft. You are so close to towering sandstone cliffs (couple thousand feet from river canyon floor to tops), with plenty... More

I have ridden this area three times and each time I come away more impressed than the last time. We rode through the park and then through Bryce Canyon on our way to Torrey Utah. If you have never taken this ride/drive it is as pretty and magical as it gets.
