Great synopsis of Zion in one drive.

Wasn’t very impressed at all with these trails. Started at trail head near virgin and turned around after about 2 miles as just wasn’t very fun. Then headed up to main trailhead that had the jem Dh course. Wasn’t impressed either. Wasn’t very dh to us at all. Just cross country trails with nothing fun. Of course impressive views everywhere can’t deny that! And easy trailhead access unlike many other off road drives we had to do to access.

MUCH preferrred the trails at guacamole, gooseberry and wire Mesa. Those were amazing and fun!

driving through this park is beautiful and keep your windows down best air in the world

Loved this trail. Beautiful views .

Fantastic drive! As with everything in Zion, do this as early as possible to avoid congestion.

Take your time and enjoy it all there is so much to soak in and some places you can stop and learn a little about the wildlife from the rangers sometimes they have little props too!

amazing views, totally worth driving slow and relaxing....

Amazing views, lots of places to pull over and take it all in. No ice when we went in early January.

Such a relaxing time on the Zion tram after a day of hiking. Deer are as common as birds in a park. Will definately go back in 2018.

Amazing drive!

Feels like you're in Jurrasic Park!

Well worth it!

Biked from the beginning of the Pa'rus trail to Temple of Sanawava and back totaling about 16 miles. A really beautiful ride especially in the early morning.

The trail begins along the Virgin River and then stays on the rim of a number of tributaries. Not that difficult of a hike but there are plenty of ups and downs to keep it interesting. I took the loop with the Virgin River Dam and it added some more scenery. It was truly enjoyable.

In the summer private vehicles are not allowed on this road. National Park shuttle bus only. But it's all good because the shuttles run constantly, very efficient, clean, well-marked route, no reservations needed. Easy on/off. The buses have huge windows and even sun roofs so you can take in the views. Highly recommended.

To best experience Scenic Drive bring your bike (mountain or road) or rent one at the Lodge.

For an easy ride take the shuttle all the way up canyon to the Temple of Sinawava and bike down canyon (lots of down hill stretches.) Or (if you have the legs) you can bike both up canyon & down. And, of course, you can get on/off the shuttle at any designated stop.

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.

Both visits to Zion have been in May, so it has been the scenic shuttle for us...and a lot of wonderful walking and hiking. We did get to drive in and park at the Lodge on the first trip since we stayed there. Nothing like waking up and sitting on your cabin porch, staring up at the first light on the canyon walls before you start your amazing day!

Amazing beautiful drive going from Zion to Bryce Canyon. We saw sheep and tons of deer. You have to pay the $30 at both Zion and Bryce, but that is good for 7 days. Welll worth it!

Angel's Landing is a life changing hiking experience! It was very challenging and exciting through to the end. I will definitely be back and cannot wait to brave this climb again.
