The trail is fairly flat and you have numerous chances to dip into the river (very cold water). It leads to the narrows which requires special waterproof pants and shoes, but you can get right up to that spot. The rocks and canyon walls are...More

This is a pretty easy trail to navigate and one that probably most people wouldn't have a problem doing it's pretty much a flat trail that follows the river flowing through Zion National Park. We went at dusk and got some really nice photographs of...More

This is an excellent choice if you are traveling with a young child, elder, or just want to take it easy for the day. The trail is not full of boulders and others obstacles that you and your group will have to climb over. Nice...More

The Riverside Walk is a very easy walk along the Virgin River to the "Narrows". The trail is pretty much flat and you are accompanied by the sounds of the flowing water. Unfortunately, the trail is very crowded but the sheer walls of rock on...More

The hike took about 2 hours (both ways). We had a 19 mo old with us, it is very stroller friendly. My son loved playing in the water at the end of the hike, right before the narrows begin. The water flow was really nice...More

Easy mile walk into the canyon - at the end you can continue on the Narrows trail (which requires waders). You can do a trail along the river too. Easy to do for families.

This is one of my favorite trails. The skill level is easy. Yet the scenery is one of the best at Zion. The trail takes you to the Narrows. We saw some wild animals on the way. The river keeps you cool even in the...More

Riverside Walk was filled with lots of beautiful sights to see and tons of waterway pools and mini waterfalls along the way. The hanging gardens were tranquil to see as you walked along the mountain. The foot traffic was a little much but it allowed...More

The only downside of this walk is the foot traffic, which resembles midtown Manhattan. But the beauty is stunning. The sheer mountain walls that go up forever, the sound of the rushing river, the squirrels that aren't scared of the tourists. A fascinating walk that...More

This hike is all paved, and although not completely flat would be easy to push a stroller or wheelchair. We did this early morning and the scenery was very nice.
