It is not a hard walk and the scenery is amazing but it is very crowded. Even down by the river, it was difficult trying to capture a photo without other people in it. When I go back, it will be during the off-season to...More

We did this walk on our arrival at Zion as it was mid-afternoon so too late to do any substantial hikes and thought an easy trail would be a good way to start and this walk was perfect. It was suitable for all ages and...More

Only had a short time, so we choose the Riverside Walk. Easy trail for everyone, beautiful views, gorgeous plants, make sure to take your camera. We didn't have a lot of time, but I did cross into the river and into the mouth of The...More

The river runs along the walkway and there are lots of photo opportunities. If you wear water shoes you can walk through the cool water.

Beautiful,peaceful, easy walk along the river for all ages. Scenery, wildlife, fresh smells of the forest abound. If you are to take one hike this is it. If you are able to go through the narrows at the end, do it. We will be back...More

This trail is located at the far end of Zion. It is an easy walk and wheelchair friendly. It leads to the narrows, though very few venture on to the latter.

This is an easy and paved walkway leading to The Narrows. The river runs alongside the walkway. Lots of opportunities for picture taking.

Great walk from the Visitor Center to Canyon Junction. Relax and take it slow. You may share it with bikers, so be advised. Beautiful lighting and views in the morning and evening.

Paved and wide, super popular trail (see: lots of people). If you have wet shoes or don’t mind getting wet, you can step into the shallow waters (although some places can be chest deep). Saw tiny kids and elderly people doing the trail and it’s...More

This is a paved hike but don’t let that fool you into thinking it isn’t worth it. This is a nice hike that leads to the beginning of the Narrows. Definitely worth doing! Watch for snakes, we did see one along here.
