Beautiful drive whether it's summer or winter. Great ski resorts at the end of the road. I've skied both. The Wasatch range is awesome. These mountains are a magnet for snow in the winter, and typically have a huge snow-pack that lasts into July or longer. Worth your time driving up this canyon if you're ever here.
Just excellent scenery for a drive by but better for access to great hiking.
You can drive the road up to I-70 then must hike back unless you have a high clearance 4 wheel drive.
I hiked the trail but could not find Sinbad. Will return when I have more detailed info and try again. The instructions are not sufficient to lead to the rock art.
High rating because of the Mormon History. The trail condition did not allow easy access to the lake.
Their was about a 10 ft. drop early in the hike that I did not want to take my grandson down. Would of preferred to have gone to the lake. High rating because the road leads to dozens of hike options that are some of the best in the area. You can easily spend two weeks here and not tire of the area. The road was extremely wash boarded and would of taken over 6 hours to travel their and back if you did it none stop. Easily doable in a two wheel drive SUV when I went. Road conditions subject to change, check with local authorities, or other travelers before attempting.
Visited Zion in April of 89 and this drive should be on everyone's list of things to do. It is an incredible canyon and the views up and down are well worth the drive here. The tunnel coming in from the east is pretty cool too. It has a few windows cut thru the side, and you can see the canyon from the tunnel.
