Great views of many of Zion's spectacular rock formations; and the road itself is an engineering miracle to be appreciated, not least for the tunnel.

Try to see Zion on this side of the tunnel. It's way less crowded, there are easy places to pull off and you'll see Bighorn Sheep.

The tunnels and the views along this drive are a real treat. We did it twice. The second time was on our way from Zion to Bryce Canyon. Even if you are only visiting Zion, take the time and make this drive.

This drive is not to be missed! Starting at Mt. Carmel Junction heading west or from the park heading east. Try to time it going west during sunrise and reverse it on the sunset. It is like being on another planet with stunning vistas at...More

how navigable is this route by 25 ft RV? Did you see many RV's on this route? How many parking spaces are available at the canyon visitors center?

Response from rhopper276 | Reviewed this property |
Many RV's for sure. There is a tunnel so you might want to check height restrictions. I don't recall the max. Visitors center has lots of parking but even on a week day in late Oct it was almost full. I can't imagine what it... More

If we enter the park along the Zion-Mt Carmel Highway, is there a place to park the car to then ride the shuttle in the park?

No. You'll have to drive all the way through to the visitor center. That's the only place to park and get the shuttle. Shuttle does not do on Mt. Carmel highway. But it's a BEAUTIFUL dive!
Can you drive this entrance the middle of May ?
