  • Already in april should not be more with your own car or motorhome the Scenic Drive drive, but that is also no penalty if you use the shuttle bus service. Reasonably fast and with good explanation of the driver what the various stops have to offer, you can choose where and when you get off. The Zion Canyon Shuttle Folder also gives you all the info needed. All stops have their charm and specific details, but the route in itself has been offering wonderful moments for everyone.
