Our six family members, including great-grandma who is 80 and the youngest who turned four, thoroughly enjoyed the Riverside Walk in Zion. A remarkable example of a riparian environment, the walk is so clearly described in the park newsletter that we knew we could all manage it. Zion is one of the best-managed parks I have been to, and the... More

We completed this hike with our 9,12,&13 year old children on a beautiful summer day. The actual trail was ok, but the scenery was beautiful, and the opportunity to walk down to the river was very fun for our kids! The trail was quite crowded which made it less fun. However, on the way back, we allowed the kids to... More

The hike on the Riverside Walk Trail is lovely. The scenery is beautiful, and there are many playful squirrels to observe. When you get to the Narrows, you can at least walk down to feel the coolness of the water even if you had not planned on getting wet by walking in the river. I hiked many trails during my... More

I can't even tell you how long this took us or how far it was. We were so swept up in the beauty of it. The walk was an easy paved path. We detoured a few times to walk down to the water. We saw deer, butterflies, crazy squirrels, and heard many different types of birds. The path leads to... More

This was our first hike in Zion Nat'l Park. After riding the shuttle to the "last stop", we embarked on this beautiful two mile round trip relatively easy excursion. Restrooms and Water at the beginning of the hike were a huge plus! Paved completely, most the trail would be wheelchair accessible. We saw some wildlife up close as well. If... More

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...
