Beautiful!

We went on a national park vacation this year and Zion was the last one. It was so amazing and beautiful. I wish we could've done more and stayed longer.

if you go to zion, you should make this drive and explore the area beyond the tunnels, even if you are not traveling in that direction. the scenery and and the geology are much different than in the canyon

We were told to be sure that we took this road into Zion because the drive was just gorgeous. I'm sure glad we did. It doesn't get much prettier than that. Don't miss it !!!!!

We drove from Bryce Canyon to Zion which put us on Rt 9 through Zion-Mt Carmel Highway. We were told to unhitch the tow vehicle as it made the RV and auto too long. So, my wife had to drive through the tunnels behind me. People need to be aware of this before they have to make the decision as... More

This is a beautiful drive, recommended to anyone who are spending time in the Zion area. The tunnel cracks me up, its treated like its a danger zone because of it "narrow" size, in most other countries this would have been just a normal good everyday comfortable short tunnel that you would drive through without giving it a second thought….in...

One of the most beautiful drives you'll ever take. Unlike any stretch of road I've ever seen, anywhere. A Must Do!

We drove from Highway 89 , on road 9 to the East entrance of the Park and that road is even more scenic than the Scenic Drive in the Canyon . Get your camera ready as there are a lot of bizarre yet beautiful rock formations , then there are the tunnels which are fun to drive through and finally... More

I drove this route with a horse trailer and truck, and paid an extra $15 for the "escort fee", and didn't get escorted through the tunnel! I just had to wait for all the traffic to clear, then was told to drive up the middle of the road. $15 for that! Good thing the pass was good for 7 days,... More

This is a beautiful drive out of Zion - we took this route to Bryce Canyon, and once you get out of the Zion Valley, there are a few switchbacks that one needs to navigate - very tight turns uphill but very worth it - nothing to worry about, just go slower, or if you have roadster.... :-) The view...

As beautiful as Zion Canyon is this climb to the tunnel. Make sure you have your Zion pass to take this road.
