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.

This is also the trail you take to get to the beginning of The Narrows. This one is pretty much always crowded, but with good reason - it's beautiful, it's a very easy walk, and it's accessible for those with mobility issues. There are lots of opportunities to cut off the path and explore the area around the trail. I... More

this walk has it all - canyon, narrows, water, wildlife, views, unexpected corners, ups and downs, ease of elk with some challenges (especially in winter when you may need ice cleats to attach to shoes). It's a longer walk, and it loos different both ways. Because of the canyon, the most light comes straight down for best illumination at midday... More

This 1-mile (each way) paved trail leads from the end of the road up into the Zions Narrows. A beautiful way to get a quick look at this spectacular canyon. This is also the starting point for day trips up into the Narrows proper, but the water and temperature in January discouraged us from wading into the river!

I enjoyed this trail since it was by the water and was easy walk to the end and back. I had knee surgergery 3 months prior to this trip to Zion and was able to do this trail without any issues. The scenery made me forget my discomfort and gave me encouragement to start hiking again. This is an easy... More

Overall an easy hike that can be enjoyed by the whole family. The trail is paved the whole way and although there are some elevation changes overall it is an easy 2 mile round trip walk. This is a one way trail trail that follows the Virgin River through a fairly tight canyon where you are surrounded by 2,000+ foot... More

The Temple of Sinawava trail is a nice easy hike. There is nothing technical about this trail. This is also the end of the route of the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. Bring a bottle of water and a camera as the photo opportunities are endless.

Very nice trail to get to the Narrows, very light walk even for people in the wheelchairs. Everyone can do this trail with easy walk. I would recommend for all to do.

Paved, pleasant, easy walk that brings you to the beginning of the Narrows trail. We saw a ton of wildlife while walking just before sunset, and it was quiet at that time too. The canyon and river are just beautiful (and narrow) on this trail.
