We went on the walk at 7 am which was the perfect time to beat the heat and crowds. As the sun came up, the rocks glowed brilliant reds and oranges. The path follows the Virgin River and also crosses it. It's a level, paved,...More

Although this walk is pretty level and easy on a concrete path there is little shade so prepare for that. Path wide enough to accommodate strollers and bicycles.

We took the Pa'rus from the Visitors Center to the Museum. This made for a short, easy walk. We were then able to hop on the shuttle to come back from the Museum. Along this trail, we were able to complete a page of the...More

When we got to the visitor center in the morning and saw the LONG line to get onto the shuttles into the park, we decided to bypass the line and walk to the next shuttle stop via this trail. It was 1.5 miles, all flat...More
