Great leisure walk!

My husband and I were in Zion for only 2 days and this was a nice little walk! I'm in a wheelchair and it was very easy and lots of beautiful scenery! We will return to Zion again... read more

My husband and I were in Zion for only 2 days and this was a nice little walk! I'm in a wheelchair and it was very easy and lots of beautiful scenery! We will return to Zion again but for much longer. Had we not had other places to be, we would've stayed longer.

A nice paved trail, but a scorcher on a hot afternoon. It is a long walk, 3.4 miles round trip (1.7 one way) in full sun. All wheels welcome (bike, stroller, any) and pet friendly!

Beautiful trail - nicely paved BUT we went on an afternoon when it was 106 degrees! YIKES! Now we know why we saw so many people down IN the river. The pavement made the trail very hot and it is out in the open. That was OUR mistake! This trail is accessible from the Visitor Center. I like the idea... More

About 3.5 mile trail through the canyon base and definitely the easiest to walk, ride or push a stroller or wheelchair. Many flat meadows, and several bridges that cross the river. Good for any family group.

This flat and accessible trail wanders along the canyon floor along the Virgin River. It is in full sunlight, which can be nearly unbearable during midday in Summer. The key to this trail is the many access points to the Virgin River. My kids had a great time playing in the water and floating downstream in the deeper water. We... More

My husband and I rented a couple of bikes and rode the Pa'rus Trail. It is flat with a couple of bridge crossings. The views from this trail are just as spectacular.

Walked this trail at the end of the day from canyon junction to park exit. Easy trail with beautiful scenery. Biked the path the next day.

The Pa'rus Trail is located adjacent to the Zion Visitors Center and the Museum. This is an extremely easy trail with very little grade change and the surface is paved with concrete. Like a sidewalk with a view. A good place to start you adventure. Be sure to watch the orientation video at the visitor center. Then go down by... More

This is a great trail (paved) for either walking or biking. It's a nice way to just relax and enjoy the canyon after you've been on a more strenuous hike. Of, if you're not into hiking, this is a great way to enjoy spectacular views from the bottom of the canyon without having to climb. The best time of day... More

The Pa'rus Trail is not really a trail in the strictest sense. It is best desribed as an asphalt-paved path located at the bottom of the canyon. Most people access it near the main visitor center or at the northern terminus at Canyon Junction. Mostly flat, 1.7 miles in each direction, it is the only trail that legally allows dogs.... More
