Great driving tour.

Great road trip up to the top. About 5 miles. Nice hike at the top - mountain lion warning while I was there! Awesome.

This relatively short road winds through some spectacular views in the north unit of Zion National Park. It's just off exit 40 on Interstate 15 and provides a serene break from the truck traffic.

Stop at the Visitor Center before beginning the drive. There are restrooms here and at the end of the road. The red color of the road is intentionally done to blend with the scenery. There are some hiking opportunities along the scenic drive like the Taylor Creek Trail and the Timber Creek Overlook Trail. The five-mile two-lane paved drive ends... More

This is part of Zion National Park but there are no connecting roads inside the park. You have to go on the highway to get here, it is worth the drive. Very beautiful at sunset.

One of the best five miles that I have ever driven. Pricey $30 entrance fee but I intended to return to Zion within the seven days so it was well worth it. Unbelievable beauty. The National Park Service really makes sure to maintain this resource.

Some beautiful scenery awaits you on this drive. There are several places to stop and take pictures. and trails to hike along the way. The end of the road is a beautiful panoramic view. There are picnic tables at the end of the road to take a break and have a snack or lunch.

Be sure to visit this Northern part of Zion National Park. Although there is an entrance fee, it covers both parts of the park and both are among the most stunning spots you will ever visit.

The mouth of this canyon is less than a couple minutes drive off the interstate I-15. It is a national park and hence there is an entry fee. If you have the National Parks Pass, entry here is included. The drive is about 15-20 minutes up the canyon, giving you various vista points along the way and beautiful Zion-like cliffs... More

This is such a sceneic drive. It's calming, and you will see many different types of wildlife. It's one of the most peaceful places in America.

The entrance to this place is from a highway (I am a foreigner) which is about an hour from Hurricane. The view at the end of the journey is just spectacular. The whole range of the red sandstones would be right in front of you. Make sure you learn how to shoot in panoramic mode before coming here as that... More
