Significance: The development of roads and bridges within Zion National Park and other parks and monuments of southwestern Utah and northwestern Arizona is a direct result of regional tourism promoted by the early railroads, National Park Service, and regional commercial organizations. The circle tourism route, first developed in 1922 and continuing through today, was the organizing force which brought visitors to the regional parks and defined the requirements for early road systems.
