“Take the Drive”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Travelling from Mt. Carmel to Vegas and took this drive through Zion Park. Unfortunately, time didn't allow us to stay over this time, but both the scenery and town will warrant another visit. The rock formation (Navajo sandstone) is very different from the red rock typical of this area. Highway is a serious strip of switchbacks, canyons, mountain tunnels. Nature/interpretive centre is a must for info and souvenirs. Town a base of mountain looks very ecclectic; lots of inns/cafes.

“Awe inspiring views”
Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

We visited Zion in the off season & were able to drive the scenic route ourselves. Frequent detours into the pull off areas were needed to enjoy the impressive vertical heights surrounding us. The canyon is small enough to take in in one day. Then it's off to Bryce

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

The Zion National Park area is truly stunning and can be admired by even the most inexperienced hiker and geologist. Those sitting as a passenger will get the most out of the drive since you can look and rely on the driver to navigate.

“Incredible, indelible expereince”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Zion national park grows on you....initially it felt like a smaller-redder version of yosemite, but the more time I spent there the more I appreciated the other worldly beauty of this park. The landscape before and after the tunnel is soooo different. Highly recommend driving and stopping at the various points and doing the little hikes along the way. Its ethereal and serene and fills one with such wonder.
