We walked a portion of this trail. It's a very easy walk, mostly flat. It meanders through the valley floor not too far from the river. Bring water, as you are in the open sun, mostly without shade. We decided to walk this trail from...More

Well paved path with beautiful views make this easy walk a top things to do when visiting the park. It is also short so perfect for a hot day. Still pack lots of water though since no shade if sun is up.

We enjoyed a beautiful early morning hike along an easy and paved trail. There were few hikers or bikers on the trail. The mountain views are exceptional. We even saw a red fox watching us from an overturned tree trunk. I recommend getting there early...More

Easy paced walk along the water and passes the museum (has some neat souvenirs). Saw hummingbirds and snakes. Not a ton of shade, FYI. But absolutely one of the easier more leisurely hikes.

Easy and pretty hiking trail (path shared with bicycles). Very good way to start exploring Zion. Suitable for all ages. Nice view of the canyon.
