So even if you are not going to take the walk thru the Narrows take the shuttle bus to the Temple of Sinawa, last stop on the shuttle bus, and walk to where the narrows starts. A nice 2 mile or so walk along the river on a paved trail. Once you reach the point where the narrows starts you... More

We started the trail around 4.00 pm and many were heading towards us after having walked The Narrows. The trail along the river is flat and accessible and there are stunning views with every step. It took us around 45 minutes to reach the section where you continue across the river towards The Narrows. Definitely worth doing as this is... More

Easy hike- we saw several motorized wheelchairs on this hike. The river is gorgeous! Several in our group spontaneously decided to hike the narrows at the end of the sinawava trail... Brr! They said it was so worth the views! Thankfully there is a seating area at the end of this trail before you cross the river to head to... More

The Temple of Sinawava Trail/Riverwalk trail is probably the easiest hike in Zion NP. It is the farthermost stop on the free shuttle and worth doing first thing in the morning as it gets busier as the day progresses. This path is fully paved and easily accessible to people of all ages and levels of fitness.

Nice hike along the Virgin River with nice scenery. Got there early so not to crowded on the way out but coming back got busy with lots of people going to do the Narrows.

The Temple of Sinawava Trail is the further stop on the shuttle and takes approximately 40 minutes from the visitor's center. Many of the people on the shuttle going all the way up will be heading into the Narrows which begin at the end of this mile-long hike. The trail is paved and not difficult to navigate for anyone with... More

The Riverside Walk at the Temple of Sinawava is a very easy walk along the river leading into the Narrows. If you look behind you as you first get to the river, you may see climbers scaling the rocks. There are numerous squirrels along the path and they seem to have little fear of the people. Remember not to feed... More

This was a nice easy scenic walk which gave people a view of the start of the Narrows. Encountered rock squirrels and other small wildlife. Access from shuttle bus.

The Temple of Sinawava sits at the end of the park road. get off the bus and walk down to the Virgin River, put your feet in the water and just relax. Look skyward and you may be blessed by the sight of one of the Park's California Condors.
