  1. Default Page Arizona- St George Ut 89-89A

    I want to travel with my 40' Motor Home to St george Utah. I would like to pick up Hwy 89 at Flagstaff and go north. Are there any hairpin turns, should I go over the Bridge Glen Canyon, looks like there are a couple of options at that point to get to St George. My concern is taking the safe route not the shortest.

    Default Zion RV Restrictions

    Driving UT route 9 through Zion N.P. from 89 to St. George has
    some driving restrictions for oversize vehicles. There's a stretch
    of road that passes through a long tunnel and with limited clearance.

    Hello and welcome to the R.T.A forums.

    The part roadie is referring to is the Mount carmel highway that winds it's way down into Zion and Springdale. It is quite a work out but travelled by many R.V's. We done it in a 30ft class 'c' without any dramas and it was our first time in one. I have read many things on different passes and one guy says it's hell the other heaven so it's hard to make a call but it's certainly doable if you fit the criteria of getting through the tunnel.

    Here is the official take on it from the park service.

    I hope that helps a little.
