We drove this highway four times during our stay and still saw something new every time. The views are incredible, with something new around every bend. A must do!

Elected to take a short road-trip on very short notice. As I had never been to Zion National Park, I briefly planned to take this drive to get an idea of what the park was like, and I had a limited amount of time. I...More

This highway is open till the snows come, we enjoyed our October drive very much. The views are spectacular and the tunnels amazing. Our Toyota Prius had no trouble with the highway. Highly recommend it...

The road from Bryce Canyon to Zion Canyon on Highway 89 is absolutely beautiful. Much more enjoyable ride than entering Zion Canyon from Springdale

We drove from Bryce Canyon to Zion so we entered at east gate. Awsome views. Beautiful. Two tunnels. So.e wait at mile long tunnel but worth it. If on Zion, take this side trip drive.

My wife and I had only a short time in Zion and it deserved a much longer visit. There are two entrances to the Park: from the south at the touristy town of Springdale, UT, and from the east on the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway, which...More

The Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway is the same as SR 9. Since the National Park Service maintains the 14 miles that go through Zion National Park, you do have to pay to drive on this road. We went for free because we have a Senior Pass....More

No, It's on the east side of Zion and Springdale. If you are driving from St. George on Route 9 then you would reach it after you pass through Springdale and into Zion.
