We did the northern part of the loop on our way from Cedar City to Zion and did the Joshua Tree section on 9/25/08 on our way back to Las Vegas from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The highlight of the drive is Snow Canyon State Park. Plan on spending a few hours here. The hiking is great. We did the Lava Flow Trail which offers great views of West Canyon and the White Rocks Trail. The Joshua Tree Loop offers spectacular scenery but there are a few deep sand sections that require care and preferably 4WD. The road was closed for construction a few miles from the southern junction with Old US91 and we had to backtrack. This however was no hardship since the drive in the reverse direction is just as great.
