“a beautiful ride”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Traveled through the Zion-Mt.Carmel tunnel on the way to Bryce Canyon - what a wonderful and beautiful trip! Checkerboard Mesa is on the other side a ways, if you need an excuse to drive through.

“Pitch Dark”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This mile long tunnel is impressive if only because it was dug into the side of a mountain in the 1930s.

Throughout the drive are some windows carved in which make for impressive views, too bad you can't pull over in the tunnel to take some photos.

“Tunnel is not most interesting part, scenery is spectacular”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is one of the most beautiful drives in the southwest! The scenery is varied and spectacular and the tunnels are just plain amazing! Don't miss this drive if you visit Zion.

“Quick”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We went through with a large RV and they were fast and efficient with the one way service. The delays were never too long.

“Take your sunglasses off!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Make sure to remove your sunglasses before entering the tunnel. I had no idea that it was over a mile long and it was well lit. Bought the book on the tunnel as I was amazed that it was completed 83 years ago.
