Also called 'hiking the narrows', this trail is very beautiful. It is along the virgin river and most people walk for a mile or two, wade in the water and take in the breathtaking scenery. A must see.

Lovely paved & pretty accessible. As at all national parks, we're glad to carry water, sunblock, snacks & rollup broad-brim hats.

Temple of Sinawava Trail is an easy walk on a paved road along the Virgin River. That's a popular trail as it also continues to the Narrows so you should expect lots of people. Don't skip it when you visit Zion NP.

This a fantastic 1 mile stroll along the Virgin River. There are many points you can go down to the river itself. If it's a hot day, I would recommend going in the morning or after 4:00. The hike is mostly flat and shaded about...More

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