Twisty canyon road with beautiful scenery, what's not to like. Road is smooth and clean. Expect traffic though especially around scenic pullouts along the road. It could get crowded with cars stopping to take pictures.

We took this drive through the Mt. Carmel Tunnel up to Checkerboard Mesa. It is just lovely. We saw Big Horn Sheep on the way and pulled off at some of the viewpoints. The road is well maintained and we really enjoyed this relaxing way...More

If you don't do anything else at Zion (and you may not be able to given how crowded it is now) you must do this drive. Breathtaking scenery you won't see anywhere else. Yes the driver must pay attention as it is a twisty canyon...More

We were traveling in October so there was absolutely no traffic. Every turn brought another beautiful view. The highway was smooth and wide for a 2-lane road. The tunnel was fasinating and enjoyable.

We took this road on our way to Bryce Canyon. It’s a nice drive with neat things to see along the way. There aren’t many places to stop, so plan ahead.

There are some pull-out spots. Take an open one when you see it because this is a busy road. There is a mile-long tunnel to go through and because people can't drive r.v.' S well and stay in their own lane, they have made it...More

Very scenic drive that takes you from one entrance to the other. This road is about 11.5 miles long and is open during the summer months. Parking along it will be at a premium.

Zion was a stop for us between Lake Powell and Bryce Canyon National Park and the drive into the park from Mt. Carmel was delightful with great views at each bend in the road. Occasional pull offs gave us an opportunity to walk around and...More

We drove through here on our way from Zion to Bryce Canyon. Gorgeous scenic drive! Going through the tunnel was pretty cool. There are people there to direct you through, and they will shut down one lane if a large RV needs more space.

No, It's on the east side of Zion and Springdale. If you are driving from St. George on Route 9 then you would reach it after you pass through Springdale and into Zion.

You can see the Arch from the drive down into the canyon from the tunnel. Some good pull-ins to view it, or the drive down the switchbacks is so slow (good) that you can simply view it from the car. Cannot help with the gps... More

Many RV's for sure. There is a tunnel so you might want to check height restrictions. I don't recall the max. Visitors center has lots of parking but even on a week day in late Oct it was almost full. I can't imagine what it... More
