We had only 1 full day in Zion and did not plan to do the Narrows so decided on this trail. It was my favorite hike in Zion. It's easy and very scenic following the river. A must do/see and highly recommended!

Shuttle to last stop #9. Mostly paved walkway. Great for those who may have problems with trails. Beautiful scenery enjoyed along the Virgin River. We did not continue to the Narrows because of rain.

Great walk along the river. Easy, paved trail. It ends at the Narrows which is worth seeing in itself.

Enjoy the shuttle ride up to the Temple of Sinawava. Jump off the shuttle and hike up into the canyon taking in the beauty of the mountains. Listen to the river ripple over the rocks.

We walked about an hour on the "riverside walk", easy (mostly wheelchair accessible), nice views, very busy. At the end you could start the "Narrows hike", what was not recommended because of potential flash flooding.

This trail is paved and an easy walk that parallels the Virgin River. The main reason to walk this trail is to embark on the Narrows hike through the Virgin River. People in a wheelchair would be able to be pushed on this trail.

Only to the Narrows. That is a wet hike.... and cold. It's at the end of the trail and up the Virgin River.
