This incredible highway is open year-round, twenty-four hours a day. An autumn drive in Zion Country reveals a wonderful display of fall foliage as leaves transition from green to bright red and shades of yellow, starting at the higher elevations of the park such as Zion's east side and Kolob sections and ending in Zion Canyon.

Zion National Park Lodging

Lodging Zion National Park Lodging and services are available in East Zion. The main road through Zion, the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway (SR-9) is open year-round, and is not a route the Zion Canyon Shuttle takes. Zion Canyon is deep inside the park. Towering 3000' walls form a slot canyon, forged by the violent rush of torrent water over millions of years. From late March to late October access through the six mile stretch of road is via the Zion Canyon Shuttle, the rest of the year the canyon is accessed in private vehicles.

 

Tunnel Restrictions - Commercial Tours are $35 to $190 for 7 days. The commercial fee is based on vehicle capacity and varies from a car to a full size bus. Oversized vehicles must pay an escort fee.

Tunnel Escort - An additional $15 fee is required for anything 7'10" wide and/or 11'4" tall or larger. The fee is good for two trips through the tunnel within 7 days. Escorts are stationed at both sides of the Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel. During the winter escorts are arranged at the entrance stations to the park. Call for more information: 1.435.772.3256 if you are driving an oversized vehicle and plan to travel through the tunnel before 8 am or after 8 pm. From early April through late October, escorts are stationed at the tunnel from 8 am to 8 pm daily.

Visit the Southwest - Zion National Park and Grand Canyon National Park are only two of the Southwest's great treasures, although they are considered to be the most noteworthy gems among the jewels. The National Parks and National Monuments of southern Utah and northern Arizona make up our suggested Vacation Itinerary. This group of natural wonders are so near each other that nothing else on earth can compare. Scenic byways connect the elite group of natural wonders that include: Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
