Owner description: This scenic highway offers interesting curves and tunnels.
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Recently traveled to Zion and stayed at resort on East side of park requiring us to travel on this road. The views are as good as they get. The switchbacks up the cliff side are a little nerve racking but the views at the stop off sights are fantastic. Make sure you take the time for stopping off and taking some pics... If you are driving be careful... Also you may see some Big Horn Sheep...

Encountered 4 big horned sheep while driving, which was unbelievable. The tunnel and scenic drive is absolutely worth it. Highly recommended!

Driving from Zion to Bryce, we passed through the Zion Mt Carmel tunnel, as you emerge from the tunnel you enter an alien landscape which runs right up to the roads' edge, it sets you up for the rest of southern Utah, which has stunning views around almost every corner.

Set your camera to action shot if you want to catch the view zooming by, that is if you are not stopping at one of the many pull outs along the way. Driving though any mountain is cool, this one has a few windows you get to zoom by during the drive. No stopping in the tunnel. If you are coming from the west you will not automatically drive through the tunnel to get to the park you will need to make a special trip. Worth it! Safe driving!

This is basically an access road, the eastern access road, to Zion National Park. It's not very special in and of itself, but once you do get to the Park you're on the Scenic Drive and that is often spectacular.
