Fantastic ride through part of the part. The canyon overlook is definitely worth stopping at. The tunnel is a Marvell of 20th Century Engineering

This road between the main Visitors Center and the east entrance is ziggy-zaggy but gives great views of sandstone cliffs and includes the amazing tunnel.

We entered Zion via this highway and we highly recommend it for anyone visiting the park. It really set the tone for the trip. The roads are paved with A beautiful maroon pavement which added to the views rather than obstructed it with black pavement....More

Depends on the size of the RV, but probably yes, because they have only one lane in only one direction at a time.

There are parking lots on either side of the road for the Canyon Overlook Trail. It doesn't matter which direction you approach. If you are coming from the East entrance, there is parking on the right before the trailhead... More
