Was only in Zion for a day in the beginning of June 2013. My only regret was that I didn't have more time in the park. It was one of my favorite National Parks.This drive is incredible! Truly a Can't Miss! Emerging out of the tunnel into the oasis of the park was beautiful. Winding down the switchbacks was a little scary (just take it slow) but so worth it! We ended up leaving through this entrance as well just so we could do the drive again.

Don't skip this! The drive through the tunnel and out to the eastern side of the park is spectacular! And you are rewarded with a very different experience from the canyon itself. The windswept rock is fascinating, weird and beautiful. Keep an eye out for the big horn sheep that live over here!

Although I have traveled this stretch of roads many hundreds of times, it's still magical. Whatever you do when you visit Zion National Park, be sure to drive the entire 16 miles of highway on SR-9 as well as take the shuttle on the 6 mile canyon scenic road. It's an experience you won't forget.

Great views, good stopping points A great way to see the Park if you have limited time and still come away with great pictures and memories.

First time to Zion, came from Bryce Point, and I was blown away! The tunnel, the red rocks and mountains. This drive is so spectacular! You will NOT be disappointed!
