The Riverside Walk is a very easy walk, paved and mostly level. It ends at the entrance to the Virgin river walk. Our family loved that the path is easy to go at your own pace, see nature and be mostly in the shade; with the canyon rising above, on both sides. When we visited, the river was running a... More

The trail is so nice and family friendly. Paved path, trees for shade, lots of offshoot paths to walk to river, awesome destination. What more could my kids ask for. We enjoyed playing in the river and my son wanted to keep going back to the same trail. The restrooms, water fountains are only at the beginning of the trail.... More

I have been here many times and always enjoy the Riverside Walk. It is best to come in the off season to avoid the crowds on this particular trail. There are bathrooms at the beginning of the trail, when you get off the bus. It is a good idea to use those before you start your walk. There aren't any... More

This was a beautiful hike, easy with little elevation change. Slightly crowded but the trail was large enough to handle. We took along lunch to eat by the Virgin River at the end of the paved trail. The trail continues through the Narrows, but water shoes are necessary to do this part as you have to ford the river in... More

This was a well paved walk that I saw someone on crutches make. You could also walk a lot of it on a sandy path near the river. Many people had gone on up The Narrows and had food things to say. Breathtaking views all around.

Nice gradual hike along the Virgin river to the Narrows. We played in the water at the Narrows. Nice scenery along the hike and we saw deer and turkeys.

It was a long walk to reach the entrance to The Narrows. It's an easy walk, and there are some sandy area where you can touch the river, but there wasn't any special views. I think you already get most of the views from the shuttle ride.

This 1.5 hour walk is a paved trail that follows the Virgin River along the bottom of a narrow canyon. Their are trailside exhibits for those seeking more information. It ends at the point where one would hike into The Narrows.

We hit the shuttle at just after 7am the day after Memorial Day and were glad we did. Fewer people and a fairly easy hike through some awe inspiring surroundings. I recall thinking to myself while on the trail how native Americans must have viewed this as a very special, spiritual place. We also took the shuttle to Riverside at... More

We walked to the narrows along this trail in early May when river levels were too high for the narrows hike to be open. But that meant we walked along a fast flowing river, greenery all around including some beautiful blooms like the yellow columbines !
