This trail leads to the narrows and is open and accessible to all. I had recently hurt my legs and was able to follow this route, which follows the river. Some small wildlife, but the routes accessibility means you will not see any bighorns during the day!

This trail is paved so it is good in the sense that older folks or those less able can get into the canyon a bit to see some of the big walls as they hike along this section of the narrows. Its a good alternative for those unable to go the distance so to speak, and very pretty. Lots of... More

This is the trail you must take to get to the narrows. It is flat and paved - easy walk - about a half hour each way. Scenic and nicely shaded in the heat. You should see a few squirrels on the trail.

This was such a great trail to hike. During our journey we saw several deer, chipmunks, bugs, birds, and the Virgin river. The sights and sounds are breath taking and we're enjoyable. Kids loved this hike as they learned about nature. I highly recommend this activity for you and your family. Thank you kindly for reading my review - McClintock853

This trail is the means of getting to the Narrows. Go early, early in the morning because this trails gets very crowded and less enjoyable as the day goes on.

unless you are planning to keep going past the end of the trail and hike the narrows trail in the river, i would not say this path is anything special . the canyon is not particularly narrow along this path and the scenery is only ok. if you have mobility problems the path is an easy grade and paved the...

This trail is really more of a walk. It was fun to hike along the river and to the mouth of the Narrows. It was a bit too crowded in June--we've enjoyed this hike much more on other off-peak visits.

The shuttle ends here and you have option to walk the local river area and enjoy the cool breeze, walk the paved path about a mile up the river or walk even further by crossing the river. We chose to walk up the river and take some fabulous pictures of the river and canyon walls. Catch a returning shuttle to... More

This is a paved, relatively flat 1 mile path that leads to the starting point of the "bottom up" hike of the Narrows. Beauty all around the entire length of the walk. If it is warm (or you are brave), you can wade into the chilly water at the end to cross over and walk just a bit farther up.... More
