As far as hikes go, this one isn't very exciting. It's paved which is nice if you need that. Otherwise, I'd like to think there are better and more exciting hikes in the park. It just didn't do much for our family. It's the beginning of the Narrows so if you're doing that you'll do the Riverside anyway. If you... More

Flat and easy walk on a fully paved trail. It takes you to the start of the narrows trail. Some pretty spots but you will not be missing anything if you skip this one.

We did the Riverside Walk and turned back when we got to the river crossing. It was enjoyable - fully paved and we saw several wheelchairs on the path (wonderful for a National Park to do this!). There is no need for any special equipment to go to the Virgin River crossing - just some shoes and a bottle of... More

This is a mostly flat, paved path along the Virgin River on the way to the Narrows that passes many features such as hanging gardens, swamp plants right next to desert cactus, sandy beaches, and lots of wildlife. (You won't believe how bold the rock squirrels are!) Really spectacular; we took more pictures on this walk than on any other... More

Rode our bikes to the start of this beautiful walk - there are trails along the river if you don't want to walk on the path that also follows the river - so much beauty everywhere - definitely would go back and rent the supplies to walk up the Narrows.

It think the Riverside walk was the best of the easy hiking trails. Saw many deer and rock squirrels. The views are outstanding. If you are up to a more aggressive hike, the narrows hike at the end of the Riverside walk is nice hike but you have to wade the stream.

This was an easy hike along a paved pathway. It is definitely worth walking along this path because it is very beautiful and you can get some nice pictures. It also has a feeling of serenity. I saw a few squirrels on this trail. One was up on his hind legs praying. This pathway leads you to the Narrows if... More

This is a very nice paved hiking trail that runs alongside the river. My friends and I did this hike at the end of a long day of more strenuous hiking and it was a nice way to wind down and end the day. The river is very beautiful with small waterfalls and clear water, so there are many opportunities... More
