We took this drive as we were going from Zion to Bryce and loved it. Walking in the Narrows was much better though :).

Some people park in Springdale and get shuttled in and out and never see this. Don'[t miss out, take the drive.

People suffer from lots of fears - heights, spiders, etc. On a trip to Crater Lake National Park, I discovered that I have a fear of edges. Not necessarily that I'm going to fall off, but that other selfie-driven people who hop guard rails are...More

Absolutely stunning, a must on anyone's bucket list for national parks. The drive on State Route 9 (between Hwy 89 and Zion Park entrance East/South Sprindale UT) is one of the most scenic ones we have seen. Park in South entrance, then take the shuttle....More

Beautiful drive- tunnel was really cool. Loved it. Minimum waits at the tunnel. Visited in July. Hot but nice

I love this place. The scenic drives are the icing on the cake for this amazing park. I suggest going in Fall or Spring due to crazy temps in the summer. Be safe and be prepared!

We have done this ride both from east to west & west to east on different trips. Yes, the scenery is magnificent ( the mountains, picture pulloffs, the tunnel etc.) and must be done even on a tight schedule. I always wonder how many people...More

You can find a map on the NPS (dot) gov (slash) Zion website. Links cannot be shown here for some unknown reason. Zion Canyon Scenic Drive starts at the South entrance of the Park and heads north for about 6.5 miles.

There are several places available to park close to the entrance. We got there approx 2:00 in the afternoon. Still plenty of parking inside. The shuttle comes around every 10 min. Easy on and off. You can get off and... More
