Nice change from the more strenuous hikes of Zion. View are great, and you cross over the river many times on trail level bridges.

Suitable for anyone who wants to use it. You can bike and or bring your dog. One of the few places in the park that allows that. Nice early in the moring or at sunset too.

Walked from Shuttle stop 3 to stop 2 along the Pa'rus Trail. Lots of bridges across the Virgin River. Great views along the lower part of the canyon, especially of the Watchman and the river. Paved and wide. Great for jogging, bikers and walkers. Not...More
