Explore the most popular waterfall trails in Zion National Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Not too challenging. Majestic views! Hike follows the Virgin river. Passed a waterfall that was flowing despite no recent rain. Take the emerald pools trail for an added challenge.

Scenic. We hiked in the afternoon which was ideal as it was shaded. Majestic views all around! We hiked from the 6th tram stop back down to the 5th. Enjoyable.

Bucket list river hike into the narrows. Walking stick recommended, can rent them just outside park. Fun, wet + beautiful.

Gorgeous and the water is a welcome cool off. Be prepared for crowds though.

Great and easy walk. Recommend getting there early. Great views and people watching. People, please don't try to do this thing barefoot, I saw 4 people at the start trying to walk barefoot in the river... They probably didn't make it far. Buy some sandals or watershoes. Also, in general at zion don't bother with camping in the park, it stays so hot there in the summer months. Ask one of the park employees for dispersed camp zones. Stayed in one surrounding a lake and it was beautiful

Easy enough hike, could be at the top and down again in under an hour. If you are looking to stretch the legs before a more advance hike I suggest this one. Views are incredible from above

This is just so fun. Make sure you have good shoes (that you're ok getting wet) the water is cold pretty much no matter when you go and the rocks in combo with the cold water will kill your feet.

easy hike, if you can call it that. it is less than 30 minutes but a fun experience if you have the time.

Short, easy hike. Nice cool place

Definitely worth it! Less known and less crowded than the other hikes. Saw a great herd of bighorn sheep on the way. A great place to cool off with some fun rock climbing and rocks to jump off of into the pools.

A easy hiking to the river, with the mode of expectation of hiking in the river!

This trail was well populated with families, as it should be (keep them off Angel's Landing!!!) It's an idyllic hike to a cool pool, with many opportunities along the way to drop into the river. I'd recommend this for a hot summer day because of the access to water.

Although the grade is steep to walk up to the falls, I didn't feel this was a hike - more of a walk up to the falls. This is a good trail for families because it's paved and wide. Just be careful nobody slips on the water.
This is a short hike, so every time I'm in Zion, I tack it onto my other hikes.

A lovely hike if you're looking for a trail that takes you by (and in) water. It'll cool you off a little if you're a summer hiker.

Very cool experience hiking up the river. Would have been a little easier if the water wasn't so muddy. Definitely get there early morning to avoid the crowds. We were headed back out around 12:30 and the amount of people just entering was mind blowing, especially since all the flash flood warning suggest being out of the narrows by early afternoon. Way too many people for my liking.

Amazing amazing place... not to be missed
Easy enough hike, trail is well wide with not too much traffic

Easy trail. Nice views through the valley. Only 3 stars as it is just not comparable at all to some of the other hikes you can do in Zion. If you only have one day in Zion and are happy to do a harder hike I would suggest hiking Angel’s Landing (even if you don’t do the chains) or Observation Point.

Amazing hike! Would suggest to go as early as possible as the crowds for the first few kms take away from the hike a little bit.

Middle and upper pools are closed I would save your time and energy for another hike. Was extremely crowded around 10:30-11 am when we went.

Great experience yesterday did this hike since Angels landing trail is still close but Planning of going back soon definitely a must do hike thru the river a little cold but so worth it !

very short steep hike, less than 10 minutes to the top.

Great hike, get out early to beat the crowds

The trail’s as packed as the splash mountain line at Disneyland, and for good reason—this place is beautiful and accessible.

this was the only trail we could do in the time we had as we arrived at 5 and left at 7. you take shuttles to the various trails which took up some time. The valley was shady. the pool was not spectacular but the trickling water was nice to see and hear. Views of the peaks with the setting sun striking them from the shadowed path. easy hike.

An interesting and unique experience. Trekking poles were useful, particularly in the rocky areas. Headed in around 5:30 pm and it was relatively empty. About 20 degrees cooler which was great on this 100 degree day! Highly recommend.

fun little walk

Scenic trail with good views and leading to a small waterfall.

Easy short trail with very nice plants and very good views

Great hike along and in the Virgin River

Awsome hike but too packed when we got there around 10. I would sugest getting on the 1st shuttle for this one. Got a little past the 1st fork, far less crowded up there.
