Was considering traveling 89 from Paige to 70 (visiting Zion, Bryce,etc.). Can asnyone who has traveled this recently comment on steep grades, bad sections, etc. (ie. what am I getting myself into). I'm have a 37' Class A 300 HP DP. Any comments would be appreciated.
We just got back from that area. Stumbled upon Page, AZ when we left Grand Canyon. We have a TT. 89 from Page into Utah is fine. However, when the road splits and you have to take 9 to get to Zion.....BAD. You have 2 tunnels..one VERY long through a mountain. AND lots of steep switchbacks going down into Zion. Coming in to the park from I-15 is much better. Flat and nice highways.
Hope this helped.
No, we left Zion through the south entrance to I-15. Wouldn't go back there any other way. Then we looped up and over to Arches in Moab. Now, THAT is a fine place to go. Lots to do. Arches is just beautiful.
Have a great trip.
