Did the drive leaving park towards Bryce and it was gorgeous. Stopped for pictures of the stunning vistas. Saw many sheep on both sides of road before tunnel. Quite a thrilling drive!

A wonderful drive through the Zion canyon, lots of places to stop and take photos. You can drive so far then catch the free shuttle to the end of the park.

What a beautiful view coming in from the east through the tunnel. Breathtaking vistas. The shuttle drive up canyon was great. So many grand views, hard to take it all in.

the best of the NP's in Utah for driving though. Views are stunning & unreal & the drive on a motorcycle words cannot describe. Just go there!!!

This drive must do. It is beautiful, powerful, & colorful. Watch people when you are driving. People taking pictures not paying attention to cars.

The entire drive was absolutely stunning, especially for this flat lander from Florida. Can’t wait to bring my family back next year.

We rode this canyon and hiked up to Observation Point. Hike to the point was a moderate hike with some exposed areas bit nothing like Angels Landing. If you have severe fear of heights I wouldn’t recommended the hike.

Never a dull moment. Winding road, unusual rock formations, beautiful colors. After Labor Day the crowds are low so it's a much more enjoyable trip.

This was a beautiful place to visit. The scenery is breathtaking ! There are easy short hikes and tougher and longer ones. You can take their free shuttle, getting on and off all day.

Unless you like Disneyland sized crowds and long waits, Zion is not for you. There is no way to reasonably get into the park with a dog. The parking lot fills up early, the scenic drive is only by shuttle, which does not allow dogs....More

Yes you can drive through but weather maybe a factor. The turn off to Zion is north of St. George (UT 9). Continue to US 89 north to UT 12 east, north of Hatch follow to Bryce. There is a considerable elevation gain and... More

I did not. However I was there during a particularly warm spell last February. I believe the shuttles run from April on through the summer and the information you have is correct. This is to cut down on tie ups and... More
