The Zion Narrows Riverside Walk is a 1.9 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Springdale, Utah that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips and is best used from March until October.
Walk through the water between high canyon walls as a nice way to cool off in Zion National Park. The Riverside Walk Trail is a relatively flat, easy paved out and back trail located at the end of the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive that travels alongside the Virgin River to the mouth of the Narrows. There are water filling stations at the trail head where the shuttle buses drop off as well as restrooms. There are sandy areas near the end near the entrance to the Narrows where you can cool your feet in the cool waters. Go as far as you like up the river but step carefully, as the water can get chest high in some places.
One of my favorites!
Busy, but absolutely beautiful. We hiked this late in the afternoon when the most of the crowds had died down (around 6:30). We saw wild turkeys and deer and it was refreshingly cool after a hot day.
Another great stroll in Zion NPS for all skill levels along the Virgin River, the beach is accessible so take a picnic and plan to stay a bit. At the end of the trail you get a really great view of the Narrows and you get a feel for why the Narrows are for experts only. the hanging gardens were just amazing too. http://simplypeg.weebly.com/
Very pretty walk thru some gorgeous scenery
Take proper gear and shoes for this hike. Riverside walk is paved and easy. Once you get in the narrows it is stunning but surprisingly more difficult than I imagined! It's not as easy hiking through 3-4 feet of water than I thought it would be. Haha. But it is an experience everyone should have.
