    Zion Mt Carmel Highway

    by goingsolo Written Jun 29, 2004

    Heading east out of Zion National Park towards Bryce Canyon National Park is the Zion Mount Carmel Highway. The highway is steep at some points and passes through a mile long dark tunnel, but is a pretty drive. There are several pullouts and trails that offer views of Zion Canyon and Checkerboard Mesa, shown in the photo.

  • Air travel to Utah is convient...

    by Mikelut Written Aug 24, 2002

    Air travel to Utah is convient from the Salt Lake City Airport. The southern area of the State is also accessible from the Las Vegas Nevada Internation Airport, but it involves driving about 100 miles into Utah.
    Interstate highways cross the state from North to South and East to West
    It's best if you can drive yourself. You'll want to stop often to view the scenery and distances to destinations can be long.
    Salt Lake City, Provo, and Ogden have a decent public transportation system, but having been to Europe, don't expect that kind of convience here. Again, it's best if you can drive yourself

    by trueaggie98 Written Aug 24, 2002

    My family used to drive here from Florida. While that drive is scenic and interesting, I am extremely partial to the airline route as an adult. Still, driving into Utah from the south is a beautiful drive. Just be sure that you take state highways to break the monotony of driving through the desert.
    You NEED a car if you want to go to the neatest places in the state. However, if you are strictly interested in downtown Salt Lake, the new light rail system provides a convenient way to get around. Just stay clear of I-15.

    by chris_clyde Written Aug 24, 2002

    Car is the best way to get around. I'm not even sure you can realistically manage any other way. The distances are long between places and roads lightly traveled. Make sure your car is in good condition and fill up the gas tank often. Help may be a long way off - my friends and I once went over 2 and a half hours driving without seeing another car (on a 'major' State Highway).

    The same RV that brought us to 7 states without any trouble.
    The roads are good, but it was not allowed by the renting company to leave the paved roads.

    Fly into Salt Lake City. Rent a car so you can drive into the surrounding mountains. Ride the local light rail train within downtown.

    The best way to explore Utah is to do so by car. For me Utah was part of a car trip that I took in the southwest.
