If you camp at Zion Parus becomes your byway. It is paved, follows the River, and is dog friendly. It gives access to the visitor center and to the museum. It's 1.8 mi so figure a relaxing 40 minute stroll. Might want to watch the sunset from one of the bridges

We went to pa'rus after we have been to the narrowes the day before. As opposed to the narrowes pa'rus wasn't crowded, the water were deep and there was a lot of shade. We stayed in the water almost the whole time. The kids were realy happy. Dont go with the crowed. Go to pa'rus!

Although all the trails in the park are stunning, my mom and I enjoyed a leisurely stroll down this trail. We went in mid March, so the trees were just beginning to bloom, and the weather wasn't too hot yet. The trail followed the river on the canyon floor and offered great views in every direction, This was the last... More

It was a great walk and really nice views but no seating areas and no shade and worst of all there was no drinking areas on the trail which is not good on very hot yes in the summer.

This is a flat trail we took on our last day. it winds along the center of the valley and offers a very different view compared to all the other hikes we were on. It is perfect for panoramas. It is a less popular trail but we thought that the views were still amazing. It was a cold day when... More

My husband & I were on the shuttle, going back to the visitor's center because it had started sprinkling. But as we came to one of the stops, we realized that it had quit, so decided that we would walk back. It's a very easy, relaxing paved walk- went along the river and past the campground which looked full.

We hadn't planned on hiking this trail but ended up doing it by accident. We got off at the Canyon Junction stop to watch the Sunset on the bridge, as was recommended. The shuttle driver suggested we get there an hour early. We did and spent about 15 minutes watching the shadows on the canyon and realized we were bored... More

This is not really a trail but an easy walk. It is paved and level, and suitable for the young and elderly. as well as wheelchairs and bikes. It follows the Virgin River. We preferred the Temple of Sinawava Trail (Riverside Walk), which was prettier and more interesting, although this too was a relaxing walk.

Loved this easy paved trail at the end of a long day of hiking and sore feet. Followed this trail for almost 3 miles and was pleasantly surprised at how scenic and quiet it was compared to other popular trails which got very crowded. Follows the river and passes through a campground. Dogs are allowed.

Nice paved trail along the river, the only option for dog walking in the park, good for kids on bikes and to enjoy the overall scenery. Easily accessible from the visitor's center and from some shuttle stops. Good for wheelchairs.
