The bus system works well and is necessary at Zion. But at times you feel you're waiting inl line at Disneyland. We had a great lunch at the lodge, what a view. The trails are crowded but the scenery so amazing. We would like to go in November to avoid the crowds.

So many amazing views to take in during this twisting and winding road. A couple of tunnels - one really long, and steep roads, make for a well worth it drive. Wildlife abounds and lots of pull outs to take pics.

The road is well maintained and the driving easy. The views are amazing. Take the shuttle and hop off/on to enjoy the vistas more and take photos.

This is the drive one takes through the park and at every turn, there's a beautiful thing to see. The mile long tunnel was interesting as one thought about the effort it took to build it!

Until recently I had never heard of Zion Canyon. At this point, I am planning a return trip. If you have never been to Zion, give yourself the time that the Canyon truly deserves. This is not just for a drive through or hour visit. However, whatever amount of time one could spend here, you would not be disappointed. It... More

The drive through Zion is quite enjoyable. There is audio narration on the buses and the drivers will sometimes add their own comments as well. Easy to use. Great views and access points.

When in Zion, take the drive that prompts, "WOW's" from all who tread there. This is unique terrain and geography that isn't usually found in visitor's own homelands. Even in the midst of late summer, greenery adds to the scenery. An experience that is highly recommended for everyone to enjoy, photograph and appreciate.

My title said it all. I've done Skyline and Blue Ridge- which are both a must see, but this Zion drive is so different that you must do it. Us easterners do not know what a Canyon is until you see this.

The more tourist walks are not acceseble with your own car. This route is not so spectacular, but if you are in the park wirh your car. Take this route.
