As a follow up we traveled that route in the last couple of days and are now near Denver. The Utah secondary highways were good for us but might be a concern for people that are not comfortable with mountain driving. The scenery is absolutely terrific.

What secondary roads were you referring to? I will be traveling a lot on Hwy. 89, 22, 62 and 24 in Utah on our trip this fall.

Out of St George on 9/59 to 89 up 89 and across high country on 12 then 24 to I-70?This was from St George down through Colorado City , Kanab, up to Bryce Canyon to Hanksville up to Green River on I-70. Very pretty route. I have not traveled the route you are taking.

Had a friend attempt to go through last week. Notice the word attempt, PU with a trailer 53' total, no go max is 50'. They have markers on the road, had to go around. He was mad.

Yep, Forest Grump took words out of my mouth. We were there just before Easter and I had always thought out MH and toad was closer to 45 feet. The ranger pointed to the 50 foot mark on the pavement and said I'm just a hair over 50, but we would be OK, just watch my speed around the hairpin curves on the other side.

Apparently the length has nothing to do with tunnel, but the sharp downhill turns after the tunnel as you descend toward Watchman campground and the main part of Zion\Springdale.

Indeed, I had no problems whatsoever with the tunnel or curves or downhill descent. My DW on the other hand who hates heights and sharp curves, (and sometimes my driving) sat with her eyes closed in the passenger seat until we got to the bottom .

P.S. - The route took much longer than anticipated, make sure you factor in an extra 30-45 minutes driving time in an RV.
