Truth of the matter was I wasn't even sure we would make it before the park closed. From the I-15 we took exit 27 to get onto UT-17 then onto UT-9 (Zion Park Blvd) into the town of Springdale, just outside of the park. Fortunately, the road trip gods were on our side as we had about 2 hours to explore. We parked at the Ranger Station and took the Zion Canyon Shuttle which follows Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. The shuttle service operates from April through October, the park's peak season. We decided to hike along the Virgin River in the Refrigerator Canyon area which gave us a great view of Angels Landing...a hike we would have attempted if we had more time. Oh well that just means I need to return to Zion.
