There are not many images of the switchbacks, but if you are interested in the Zion Canyon Tunnel click here. The National Park Service offers loads of information on the tunnel because of how narrow it is. Most large RV's and busses have to be escorted through as NPS closes traffic in one direction. The route is most scenic, and I highly recommend it if you are not in a rush to get to the park. During the summer months, there can be delays as you approach the park from Route 9.

There are beautiful roads throughout the park where road surfaces are smooth smooth, winding, with gorgeous canyons and cliffs all around you.  The popular part of the park, where most of the favored scenic spots are located, is the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. 

If you finish Zion Canyon and you are looking for more, try out the Kolob Terrace Road.  You will see fewer park visitors, cars, and the western side of the park- all to youself!  This road is much less frequented than Zion Canyon, and worth a good foray.  There will be a few steep climbs on this side; but where you go up, you will also come down!

There is not any mountain biking in the park.  If you wish to mountain bike in Utah, the area outside of Moab that is not National Park land will allow mountain biking, and is famous for it.  I know of no National Parks that allow mountain bikes off-road.

You should try http://www.recreation.gov/camping if OhRanger.com doesn't have the information you need.  From there you can book a reservation too.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes by posting your thoughts to our Zion pages (or other parks)!
