End of the road on Zion Canyon Scenic Drive with running water, amazing rocks formations. Rest area with limited parking for Winter travellers. You can only access by shuttle bus during summer travel seasons.

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!

My husband has a heart condition and yet he was quite able to take this hike. The fall colors were stunning on this trail, and the deer very tame.

We did our tour with the southwest adventure tour company so it was a tour of five canyons. The first was through zion and in particular the sinawava temple hike. This was approx one mile and at the end it turns into the Narrows. We didn't take this portion as it is apparently a five mile trek to the end... More

To the start of the main river is about a 30 minutes walk from the shuttle bus stop. if you have waterproofs and waders as many walkers did then you can walk down the river for many miles if you so wish. You cannot do this without the appropriate clothing as there is no footpath. Watch for rock climbers en... More

This trail is at the last stop on the shuttle. It is level and paved, but there are opportunities to get closer to the river. The scenery is really pretty as the walls of the canyon get closer, and the trail ends at the start of the Narrows trail (for which you should have waterproof shoes.) it's the easiest trail... More

This trail was a delight. It has beautiful scenery and is well maintained for rather easy going. It follows the river which is nice. The free shuttle ride up to the trail is scenic and handy from the visitor's center or the Lodge.

This trail is at the end of the paved road. It takes you into the ever-narrowing upper canyon, and eventually leads to the beginning of the narrows. Going further requires wet suits and water boots. The trail itself is paved most of the way and is fairly level, so it is an easy walk, though lengthy. You can get off... More
