The scenic drive in Zion National Park has closed as of approximately 10:15am due to traffic congestion in the Park. They will reopen the scenic drive once legal parking spaces become available again (typically around 4pm).
Due to the combination of the high number of visitors, the Park’s scenic drive closing, and the construction leaving a single-lane of traffic in some areas throughout Springdale, visitors should expect extra long wait times during the day. We have seen wait times as long as 1.5 hours!
Turn off your engines, roll down those window, and enjoy the views and the beautiful weather while you wait 🙂
Don’t forget to check out other areas outside of the main canyon of Zion National Park for your daytime adventures!
