Dramatic Geology in Utah’s Red-Rock Country
Just Ahead’s GPS-guided smartphone audio tour of Zion National Park takes you on four distinct scenic drives through this extraordinary park. (Plus we add a tour of Cedar Breaks National Monument as a bonus.) All you need to do is turn on the app and drive. As you approach the park’s sights, Just Ahead tells you what exactly what you’re seeing.
Sample a few of the hundreds of stories that play automatically as you drive through Zion National Park:
Our Zion guide leads you to all the dramatic viewpoints along these roads:
Zion Canyon Scenic Drive • Zion–Mt. Carmel Highway • Kolob Terrace Road • Kolob Canyons Road
Two of these roads are completely overlooked by most visitors to the park!
You hear about what you’re seeing as you see it, and we make sure you don’t miss any of the park’s scenic wonders. Such as:
Court of the Patriarchs • The Grotto • Weeping Rock • Angels Landing • Great White Throne • Big Bend • Temple of Sinawava • Zion Narrows • Zion–Mt. Carmel Tunnel • Checkerboard Mesa • Great Arch • Streaked Wall • Kolob Arch • The Subway • Lava Point • Kolob Finger Canyons • Kolob Canyons Viewpoint
Along the way, you get roadside geology lessons…you’ll hear about the park’s wildlife…and stories about the American Indians, pioneers, and explorers who paved the way. Plus stories about Zion adventurers, including canyoneers and big-wall climbers. And:
Historic Lodging • Roadside Geology • Park History • Great Short Hikes • Don’t-Miss Side Trips • The Ghost Town Where a Famous “Butch Cassidy” Scene Was Filmed
You’ll experience Zion National Park in a way you never could on your own—and there’s no need to take your eyes off the scenery to thumb through maps and guidebooks.
Plus This Bonus Guide: Cedar Breaks National Monument, The Great Hoodoo Amphitheater
One of Utah’s most dramatic scenic byways leads to Cedar Breaks National Monument, where Just Ahead guides you to a series of viewpoints and walks along the rim of this mammoth natural amphitheater.
We direct you to every possible view of Cedar Breaks, where you’ll see a maze of natural limestone pinnacles known as hoodoos, as well as fins, arches, windows, and cliffs—all in bright hues of crimson and orange. You’ll see:
Hoodoos • Bristlecone Pines (World’s Oldest Living Organisms) • Alpine Meadows • Wildflowers • Alpine Ponds
And we tell you:
Where to Hike • Where to Camp • Side Trips and Approaches From Every Direction
A visit to Utah’s canyon country isn’t complete without seeing Cedar Breaks. Our complete guide to this monument is included with your Just Ahead guide to Zion National Park.
