This was a gentle walk along the riverside. It allowed the hiker to experience the changes of the river, park wildlife (chipmunks and deer), water meandering off the rock walls and dripping off plants and even a swamp. The wild flowers are hard to spot, but if you stop to look, you will find the beauty of the small flowers.... More

This is the short and easy trail leading to the Narrows, and is also known as the Riverside Walk. The trail is relatively flat and very shaded. It is not very spectacular of itself, but leads to the beautiful Narrows which should be one of your most important destinations in Zion. If you plan on walking the Narrows, remember that... More

The path follows the water and you need to take this in order to get to the Narrows. It is a quick easy walk for anyone and is paved throughout. You can walk off the trail just a short distance to the water.

I think a lot of the visitors come here just to get in the water! It'd be worth it! At the end of the trail there are a lot of people... But if you walk up or down stream just a little way- you find delightful solitude!

Great access to the river, bring a swimming suit and water shoes. Beautiful view of the canyon above, while you can choose spots to wade or swim.

I have been at this site several times (in Fall and Spring) bringing my students on the photo workshops that I lead. It is best to go in the Spring when the water level is higher and the fall is at it's maximum flow (in Autumn, the fall is almost dry). Beautiful site to photograph with the river, the vegetation...

There is nothing special on this trail and it is a dead end! You probably will not see the narrow canyon in the pictures. Not unless you are willing to wade across the fast-moving river - on slippery rocks - with or without shoes, and continue hiking. This information should be prominently posted at the beginning of the trail.

Nothing beats Angels landing. This is a easy trail but has some good views. Takes you to the passage of the narrows. Gives access to the river so you can enjoy the water too.
