This is another example of just how accessible Zion is to everyone, whilst it is the gateway to The Narrows it is also a beautifully scenic walk that will cater to all ages and mobility. It gets busy, so get early to enjoy a quieter experience.

We loved this - saw crazy climbers on the mountains - enjoyed the funny squirrels - it was a nice easy path.

Paved scenic easy walk. Even saw people in wheelchairs. It has gentle rises & falls. Plenty of benches or rock to rest on during the way. Large circle at end which makes get pic for groups. Mostly shaded in afternoon. Great seeing hikers coming out of the narrows. Very nice stroll.

It was raining but it still gave us a good understanding of the greatness of this beautiful place. The walk (not a hike) is on a paved path along the river and you look up at great mountains on both sides.. but if you like to hike you should find another trail.

This was the first walk I took in Zion and it was a perfect introduction to the wonder of the park. Started the day early after staying in a cabin at the lodge and caught the shuttle to the trail head. Piece of cake. This is an easy trail, accessible to all and for that reason you won't have it...

This is a 2.2 mile roundtrip hike. This was our last hike of the day at Zion. It offers a paved walkway that goes along the Virgin River. The path was very popular with tourists but not too crowded since it is the off season. It was fun to see the start of the narrows hike. Would have loved to... More

We walked along the Riverside Trail on the way to hike up Zion Narrows. The Riverside Trail itself is paved so should be easily accessible by most. As the name suggests, it's along the river which you can see most of the time and hear all of the time! There are some points where you can come off the trail... More

Walked the riverside trail and put on water shoes at the end and walked up the narrows for about another mile. Well worth the getting wet.

Hiking through the river was one of the best things I did in a long time! Be warned, though, take a walking stick. HAVE FUN!

This trail is paved and has some hills but is a trail that most people, old and young, can enjoy. The views are nice. This trail is very crowded at times.
