Create an itinerary including Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel
Designed to link a few of the country's most famous national parks, Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel still serves today as a convenient shortcut through otherwise-solid rock. Finished in 1930, the 1.7 km (1.1 mi) tunnel provides you with access to the Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon directly from Zion National Park. Drive through the tunnel and you'll emerge on the other side from a solid rock face, chiseled out of the mountain itself. Keep in mind that larger vehicles must give prior notice to the tunnel operators, as they can only run through the tunnel at certain organized times. Using our world travel planner, Zion National Park attractions like Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
