This was a wonderful walk. Very easy but beautiful. The views of the watchmen when walking from Canyon Junction to the History Museum were wonderful. Took many photos of the Watchman and the Virgin River along the way. Not a difficult walk at all.

We took this hike since it was the only pet friendly hike we could do with our dog. It was great. My husband dropped me and the dog off at Shuttle stop #3 and then he went back and parked the car. He joined us back at the stop and we headed down the path which went from Shuttle Stop... More

We did part of this trail so that we could take the dog for a walk. Also a good trail for easy walking & biking.

For me, this hike was almost too boring that can put you to sleep. It does not mean it will for you. This trail is accessible from Grand Junction and the Visitor Center, shuttle stop number 3 all the way to the visitor center. The paved trail follows the Virgin River from the South Campground. This trail is also used... More

I know that this is a short trail and we wanted to take it because it is dog friendly. All the pictures I have seen of it show the river so I thought it would be very pretty. We had to start by the visitors center as that's the only access for dogs. The part that was disappointing to us... More

This is the only trail in Zion that allows dogs. It goes along the Virgin river and behind the campgrounds. If your riding your bike down the canyon road, this trail will take you back to the visitors center and is a relief from the noise and traffic.

This is an easy trail. We did the 1 1/2 miles hike back to the Visitor Center. Talked to many bikers and walkers along the way, saw the swift flowing Virgin River, and watched a deer eating an early morning snack. The views are unbelievable.

my husband and I walked this paved 1.5 mile trail hand in hand and it was a lovely experience. If you rent bikes this is the best trail to ride.

Zion is a place of extreme beauty, and this trail highlights that beauty wonderfully. It is a paved and (almost) flat trail, which makes it accessible for everybody. It follows the Virgin River from the Visitor Center to the Canyon Junction shuttle stop (with a spur to the human history museum if you'd like). You won't find a lovelier or... More

The Pa'rus Trail is a paved, gentle path that follows the Virgin River through Zion Canyon. While the challenging hikes of Zion; Angels Landing and The Narrows, are the most famous, this quiet path is by far the most breath taking. From the canyon floor, the canyon walls rise dramatically on both sides. As you walk, the canyon stretches before... More
