This must be where the scenes from the movie 'Cars' were based on. The view from the cut-outs in the tunnel were awesome.

“Tunnel!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2012

I remember the first time I went through this tunnel, over a decade ago. It was a full moon, and it colored all the red rock of Zion National Park a beautiful pink color. Seeing the pink colored rock through the ventilation windows of the tunnel was definitely a memory I'll treasure.

I now live in the area, and I try and take every visitor with me through the tunnel. Even if it's not a full moon...

“Cool little view windows.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

A long tunnel through the rock- with peek a boo holes cut (well, I'm sure they were made to exhaust the toxic vehicle exhausts) but still very cool little scenes you wouldn't otherwise get. Large vehicles are extremely regulated here. If you don't like tunnels, don't do it. What an interesting, man made tunnel. How often does one get to drive through a huge mountain like this?

“Totally amazing views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

This is one of the most interesting tunnels....the views on the road are gorgeous, and the tunnel has scenic views cut into the side. Definitely worth the (possible) wait to drive through it.
