Zion tunnel restrictions?

Recommended Posts

On our way out of Zion a couple weeks ago we got behind a huge Attitude fiver toy hauler, looked like it was 15 ft high from right behind, but is only 13'5" according to the specs. Anyway I thought we would have to wait for the trafffic stopping and escort rigamarole but no the ranger just waved him thru. The ranger said to us as we passed her: "I hope he makes it!"

Have they done away with the tunnel restrictions? They were doing one way traffic both coming and going but that fiver did not hug the center line. He wizzed around the turns and almost ended on his side once when he hit the curb and kicked up the right side of the fiver once but made it down OK.

When did that happen?

May  2005 we bought a new 40' Grand Junction 5er, left home in June and didn't return home until November.

The park ranger waited until there were at least 3 large vehicles then radioed the ranger at the other end of the tunnel to stop traffic. That is some drive after leaving the tunnel.

Yes we know there were restrictions but they did not seem to be in effect when we were there several weeks ago. They just waved that big toy hauler thru.


I just did the obvious and looked at the Zion page

Tunnel Restrictions

And they seem to be in effect but were not on the day we were there. That toy hauler is 13'5" high but that page says:



Prohibited Vehicles
Vehicles over 13 feet 1 inch tall, Semi-trucks, vehicles carrying hazardous materials, vehicles weighing more than 50,000 pounds, single vehicles over 40 feet long, combined vehicles over 50 feet long. All Bicycles. Pedestrians.

So too high and at 36 ft long plus 20 feet of truck probably too long. No measuring occurred by the friendly park ranger either.
