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.

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