This is a really lovely drive through the park, and you will have to do it if you are using the East Exit instead of just coming through Springvale. It is very busy during the peak hours of the day, but, if you can manage,...More

The highway is Hwy. 9 between Mt. Carmel and Zion National Park. More switchbacks than you can count, a long tunnel, heavy traffic and even a herd of big-horns. Exciting - especially at dusk!

You must ride the free Zion shuttle to access this scenic drive. It leads to many of the beautiful trails in the park. It is a must do. We rode this route twice, two days in a row. Do it!

We've visited several National Parks and Monuments. This one takes the prize. Our heads were on a swivel. Fortunately, we were on a bus tour so we could take in all the sights.

The park is breathtaking! The best way to describe the beautiful rocks is massive. The best way to see it is to take the shuttle bus on the scenic drive. Each stop provides views that are different from the one before it. From Spring thru...More

There was no charge for the scenic route. The only charge is when you pass through the national park. I can’t recall off the top of my head if you have to pass through the park to get to the scenic route or not. If so, there... More
