As you either enter or exit the canyon even if you've been here a couple of days walking as you drive up along this route you'll see yet more views which amaze.

Every time I visit Zion I make sure we drive this less known road. It is mesmerizing, enchanting, beautiful, full of surprises, colorful...it always takes my breath away. From the moment you being ascending towards the tunnel that will take you to the other Sid of the park you know you are about to experience a landscape like no other.... More

What a remarkable place, there is so much to explore -- hidden waterfalls, hiking trails that aren't crowded (as they are on the other side of Zion..). Splendid

This is one of my favorite drives around the national parks in Utah. It is beautiful at any time of the day and the year. I was just there 2 weeks ago and drove through the highway in late afternoon.

After an unforgettable day at Zion, this drive out of the park was a fantastic finish! The road is winding and the tunnel is pretty cool. I definitely recommend it.

For those who love natural beauty there isn't a more beautiful drive. The night shadows and cool winter air transform Zion National Park into a winter wonderland with a dusting of high mountain snow and fall colors still on the trees. A full moon hike or drive caps the magical experience.

We drove this route a few years ago in June. We returned to Zion National Park for a winter visit over New Years. This highway is the route to Bryce Canyon National Park. There are several scenic switchbacks and a couple of tunnels that make the drive both scenic and interesting.

Having driven in lots of the world I can honestly say that we enjoyed this drive one of the most. The road surface was excellent which made driving easy and enjoyable. Thank goodness for all the pull-offs so that we could get out and capture all the tremendous views and rock formations on camera.
