The even paved path along the Virgin River, surrounded by massive rock formations is at the end of the shuttle bus outbound run. It is one of the easiest and most pleasant walks anywhere. If you don't get there early on a summer day you will be engulfed by crowds who want to stroll the path, and others set on... More

This is the last stop of shuttle bus and this trail leads to the Narrows (bottom up). We saw deers in the woods while we walking through this trail. Not a challenging trails but a decent scenery along with Virgin River till it cuts in become the trail of the Narrows.

Be prepared for a LOT of people on this hike, as this is the entrance to The Narrows, and is also the last shuttle stop. TIP: do this hike with extra patience, but do not spend a lot of time here. Instead, head to any other hike (see other reviews) where there are hardly any people - even in July.... More

This is the last stop of the shuttle bus and takes you up to the start of the Narrows hike. It is around 1 mile out and then the same route back and paved all the way. Nice views of the river and lots of paths off the trail to the river. Pretty flat. Go early because it gets progressively... More

River on the left and cliff faces on the right, its a great walk/hike. I would pick this trail to do in the morning. We got a later start and it was bit hot on the way back, the sun had moved and most of the shade was gone. Its a very easy hike though, you can even bring a... More

Mostly flat trail that is also paved. Anyone can enjoy this hike. About a mile one way, there are several places where you can get your feet wet in the river. Lots of shade too. You can experience all the colors, sounds and smells of Zion on this hike. Makes for a nice after lunch hike or an anticipation builder... More

Wonderful trail that parallels the river - and you can opt to walk along the river bank as well. Was my favorite part of Zion NP - getting to walk deep into the canyon alongside the stream/river that formed it. Beautiful!

An easy hike along the Virgin River to the start of the narrows. This is the farthest that the Park Service shuttle goes up the canyon. Plenty of scenery, the river, and wildlife. You may see climbers on the canyon wall or deer in the forest.
