Beautiful expansive park that deserves more than a couple fo days. I would suggest going if you only have one, but the more the better as there is so much to see. * Drive through the park, from entrance to entrance, to get a real...More

We entered the park from north entrance. The drive was beautiful. Lots of pull offs available for pictures.

I have a ridiculous fear of heights so I sat in the back and occasionally peaked through my fingers and tried to enjoy the spectacular views. The bends were crazy. My step son was so great to drive so cautiously along this bending, narrow road...More

It's possible to visit Zion National Park without driving the canyon road. And what a shame that would be. The climb up to the tunnel from the main area of the park is a dramatic drive with multiple hairpin turns. Driving through the mile-long tunnel...More

Zion National Park deserves as much time as you can allow but if pressed for time the Canyon Drive will give you a great overview. A bit pricey at $30 per vehicle.

We drove this early around 6:30am before the congestion started. Views at every turn. Take you time go slow and enjoy it. The tunnel is an added bonus.

The drive into Zion is the best part of visiting the park. The switchbacks, rock faces and all of the ever changing colors and textures are absolutely awesome. There are numerous places to pull off to take pictures. Within the park there is limited parking....More

Take it slow. Ride the entire road. Take endless pictures. Amazing. There are bike rentals at entrance to park.

I've no idea about the proposed delay, however, the SCENIC DRIVE is one of the best drives I've ever taken, as the views are just A-MAZ-ING. Try to do it if you can!!
