We decided to do this hike at the recommendation of our hotel staff. It was an easy walk on a mostly paved path with beautiful views along the river. Took about an hour and it's about 2 miles round trip. You walk to the end...More

This is an easy hike located at the last shuttle stop in the main canyon. It ends where the Narrows “trail” begins. There is simply too many amazing scenes/views along the way, including hanging gardens and a swamp. Can you believe it, a swamp in...More

This is probably the easiest trail in Zion, good for all ages, and is mostly flat. It is paved and wheelchair and stroller accessible. You will need to walk this trail to get to the narrows. Otherwise you can walk back, making it a 2...More

We saw deer and chipmunks and beautiful plants and flowers. Beautiful easy trek which could be more strenuous if you went through to the Narrows.

We did this walk today, taking the paved trail to the Narrows and walking along the river on the way back. Both trails were easily accessed and nice to walk. There is little change in elevation so, no steep hills. The scenery is breathtaking.

It's very nice to walk along the river deep into the canyon. It's a very easy walk which is why it's so busy. Lots of wildlife, vegetation and whirlpools in the river. Leads to the narrows if you want to go into the river. Quite...More

We got into the park early and took the shuttle to the end where we began the easy paved hike. There are several places where you can't help but to stop and take photos. I didn't envy the hikers that were hiking the Narrows. I...More
