This has to be the best walk in the park - easy, yet lots of impressive sights!! Paved path with beautiful wildflowers. Saw people in wheelchairs - so nice to see access is possible for all!! Awesome views of the canyon yet you could hear the soothing sounds of the water passing by. Access to the river is possible several... More

I believe Riverside Walk is now the name of the trail in the Zion National Park Guides and the Temple of Sinawava is the location and bus stop where the trail begin. It is a gentle trail with plenty of scenery and wildlife. It ends at the beginning of the Narrows trail,

We passed several people in wheel chairs so it was nice to see that physically challenged people can make the trip. The negative side is there is just too many people in the Park. Evening is better since most families are settled in by supper time.

This is an easy walk and there are so many opportunities to take photos. But don't just walk the trail looking at where you are going. Look up, look back, walk down to the river (on the marked trails) and enjoy everything the canyon has to offer.

We took this trail the afternoon after we hiked to Angels Landing. It was a nice leg-stretcher. At the end we walked up river to The Narrows just for a little look-see. The water wasn't as cold as we expected. Really refreshing. Be careful there, the rocks can shift & be slippery. With proper hiking shoes, you should be ok.... More

Views on this trail and it is an easy walk (all paved). Saw the narrows and people hiking up there, definitely something for next visit.

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

Great for the first day when you arrive to Zion NP. If you do the narrows, you do this one anyway because it's on the way. This is the last stop of the shuttle so it takes time to arrive but your chances to get a seat when back are higher

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
