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

An easy stroll along the river , as advertised in the Park paper' to the start of the Narrows.After reading some of the reviews I guess we were lucky in that though we were far from alone it did not feel crowded. If you want to taste the start of that canyon without wading or swimming in the cold Virgin... More

We walked the Temple of the Sinawava Trail when the weather was dry and it was pretty. Lots of birds, deer, and the river was gentle and flowing slowly. We went back the next day after a heavy rain and it was a totally different experience! The river was heavily swollen and carrying trees -not tree branches, but entire trees-... More

Beautiful paved walk along the Virgin River. The full walk was about two miles but had several places where you could go to the river and then head back if desired. If you have the time, take the full walk.

Very easy trail and spectacular views. It can get a bit crowded - so we liked it best at sunrise. While the main trail can be crowded, you can get off near the river and relax in peace. Just watch out for rattlesnakes.

Really easy to access and good for almost any ability. A paved walkway leads through the canyon alongside the stream. There are stream access points at many places so you can go just as far as you can manage. There are one or two shady spots along the way but not a huge amount of room on the trail for... More
