We were on our way home from Page, AZ, and decided to check out the park for a few hours. We took the shuttle all the way to the temple of Sinawava, and planned to stop at a few spots to do some easy hike. The fresh green from the new leaves, red rocks, and clear blue sky formed such... More

Wow, they really planned this park out well and the trails that allow most people to enjoy them. This one even accommodates some wheelchairs. This paved path winds around the Virgin River and ends after 1 mile of strolling. (Round trip, 2 miles) It offers amazing scenery in the canyon. Those feeling more adventurous and prepared (drysuit pants, water hiking... More

Last shuttle stop. May want to take shuttle all the way in to here first to walk the river and the Narrows. Maybe even picnic if you brought something. You get the overview of all the other stops on the way in. Then, late in the day with the rush to get out you are already heading that direction and... More

If you are in a time crunch, this is a great (paved and popular) trail to walk. Truthfully, neither the pavement or the popularity is a problem. Why? Because the views are just so awesome, you're not worried about anything else! I would highly recommend it!

Nice and easy trail. Only takes about 30 min to an hour. This leads all the way to the starting point of The Narrows.

The grade is quite level. The scene keeps changing with every 200 yards or so and is so beautiful. It was winter, so could not get into the narrows, but the snow from the previous day made the scene look out of the world. Was really excited to have been there...

Nice even elevation stroll along a scenic river towards the narrows. Easy to incorporate this hike into the scenic drive up the canyon and is only 2 miles return trip. Washroom and water fill up facilities at the beginning of the trail as well. Recommended.

This has to be one of my favorite trails at Zion! I don't like heights so this canyon trail was perfect for me and my family. We enjoyed the trail paved and riverside. Absolutely beautiful in December!
