Driving from Zion to Bryce

Need easiest driving directions from Zion NP ( Willow Wind Campground) to Bruce NP. (Ruby's Campground). Towing a 43 ft. fiver. I understand there is a tunnel that I'll need to avoid somewhere along the route. Appreciate any suggestions.

The tunnel is on the Zion/Mt Carmel Hwy...permits required if over the size of the average Class B high roof full-size van:
The Zion-Mount Carmel Tunnel - Zion National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

Easiest route from Willow Wind CG (Hurricane) to Ruby's (Bryce) avoids that tunnel (but maybe it could be a side trip in the truck?):
I-15 North, 20 East, 89 South, 12 East...about 130 miles.

Safe travels

You can also take from Hurricane, Hwy 59 to Colorado City which then becomes AZ389 taking you into Fredonia, AZ. Then north on 89 to Panguitch and east on 12 to Ruby's.


We've driven both of the alternatives and both are good for big RVs. No issues. We think the 59/389 is prettier.

That is the way we went in July--- no problems with a 43' MH and toad.
