“Gorgeous drives. . . .wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Loved taking this drive through Zion. The views all around and at every turn were amazing. The tunnel was wonderful with little "windows" built into the sides. I tend to get a little tense in longer tunnels but the little viewing areas that were cut out along the sides not only took the tension away, but gave you spectacular views along the tunnel! And the rest of the drive was simply amazing. What a wonderful National Park! Enjoy.

“Switchback Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!

“Crazy landscape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

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.

“Get your camera ready”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

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!
