Found this trail while running on vacation in Page. Nice views and not too technical. Easily accessible off n. Lake Powell blvd from the hotels near there. Also a parking lot at the trailhead on that road.

Check the weather and your water. We went to sliderock arch and back from the campground and logged 15.4 miles. I’m a bigger guy and went through 4L of water. Walking through the sand and over river rock added a solid difficulty to this long and grinding trail. You need to go around 4 miles to see the steeper canyon walls. Many cool things to see. If you don’t have the time or energy to do this trail, check out wire pass to buckskin gulch.

We really enjoyed this simple trail with views of Lake Powell. The hanging garden at the end is pretty interesting since it is in a desert. Stay to the right on the trail to see the garden.

Part of the path strays towards the lake and has great views, but if you are aiming for the garden, stay to the right.

Enjoy!

Very easy and quick hike with some good scenery along the way. When you reach the hanging garden portion it's pretty interesting to see the contrast between the desert and the plant life.

The wind whipping through the area was amazing. This short hike is good for a quick tour but isn't that rewarding overall.

Flat, boring trail with a nice hanging garden at the end. Super easy hike, would be good for kids. Not much good scenery until the end unless you wander off the trail.

Easy hike for 68 year man and woman; but we have also hiked the Verdon Gorge in France. There was some scrambling over rocks. Take hiking poles. In many places there are two or three paths and some are easier than others. It was so quite you could hear your heart beat. We hiked late in the day and the sun was just over the western cliffs as we arrived back to the parking lot.

Did the 40 mile throug hike from Wire pass to Lee's ferry in 2016. Best day hike is going in from the north down to the confluence and back out. about 14 miles total I believe. Beautiful, narrow canyon starts about 4 miles in or so. Great hike but you're in a muddy river for prob 25 straight miles once in there. Hiking water shoes a must! Stay away from the big boulders in the water! downstream and to the side of them is where the deep muck is! Drinking water is scare so pack a lot of it in. Most important is to watch the weather VERY closely. Nowhere to hide for many stretches in there if it floods. No cell communication down in there so someone will have to hike out for help.5 days was perfect. Day 5 hike out is a long, hot one out into the desert for sure. Beautiful hike though!!! Happy trails!

Easy peasy, I guess we didn’t even get to the gardens because we were standing on the peaks of sandstone with amazing views. I like long hikes with elevation change and challenging terrain,but this was beautiful views with minimal effort.

A fine, easy walk. Good for kids and family, but nothing challenging nor great views. The "garden" at the end is pretty anti-climatic

This trail was an easy walk out and back to the hanging garden. Nice views

Easy and nice views.

On the NPS hike guide, it is actually called "Hanging Garden" trail. This 1.2 mile trail is flat, with the exception of a mild climb towards the actual garden. The garden is neat to see, but nothing crazy. Our dog enjoyed the trail too.

I planned on doing a day hike of maybe 10-15 miles with my daughter being that this had a rating of easy. I was fooled... quicksand is a real thing and it went up to my hip (my phone flew out as I tried to escape too... so make sure you keep that in a secure place and waterproof it). I would definitely like to go back better prepared for the situation. Please note that if you are entering from Lee’s Ferry ...that you should account for about a 1 mile hike between the parking lot til you get to the Paria Trail. I say take your time on this trail to enjoy the scenery and plan on spending the night so you don’t feel rushed!

Faite seulement dans la partie Nord avec la vue sur le lac Powel. Même au mois d’octobre il fait chaud !

Great views! Easy trail, a little more fun if you venture off towards the water.

This was a nice surprise to find in Page passing through with my bike. Ride it in the morning and the sunrise views over Lake Powell are spectacular. I've rarely had this much fun in a new trail. I think it's correctly rated as Moderate.

Short easy hike, worth doing if you are in the area.

Great mountain biking trail, a good 10 mile loop around Page, with a few technical parts. Awesome views of the desert and Lake Powell. Gets very hot in spring/summer (obviously), bring a lot of water. Also fat bike tires are highly recommended to navigate the sandy part of the track. Signage is not the best, watch for the "Rimview trail" signs.

Great views in areas and a fun spot for mountain biking. Avoid the middle of the day since it's incredibly hot. Not a very busy trail which is a nice change in Page

I only Madi it 2 miles of the trail. But I would really like to do the rest of this beautiful hike.

A simple stroll really, as others have mentioned the trail is often hard to follow due to erosion but it is hard to get truly lost. The trail is a pretty typical look at Desert River passageways with cottonwoods and low laying grasses. The trail does not get that exciting until the turn around point which can be disappointing to those who don't want to hike the full length or those who simply don't have time to hike it.

Do hike the mountains 3/4 into to the left of the trail, they offer great views of lake Powell, the tower, and the spectacular scenery

We only hiked the first 3 miles or so before having to turn around. Trail guides say this is a 40-45 mile hike ending in the Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. We started at Lee's Ferry at the Lonely Dell trail, which is less than a mile and ends at the trail head for Paria Canyon. The trail is difficult to follow at times due to erosion of the river banks. However much of the trail is on beach sand far from the river itself (we went in April when the Paria was nothing but a shallow stream in most places so the trail does not hug it all the time). The distant canyon walls, occasional giant boulders, Cottonwood trees, grassy shrubs, flowering plants, and many lizards/insects make for a varied hike and many photo opportunities. However the classic descriptions of being hemmed in by high canyon walls is not to be found until 15 miles in or so. Paria canyon starts out wide (or rather ends wide if you hike it from Lee's Ferry and follow it upstream). A beautiful stroll if you don't mind losing the trail every now and again. But since you're in a side canyon, it is difficult to get lost regardless of the trail.

This trail is easily accessed from the Lee's Ferry boat ramp where there is plenty of parking. The trail starts out wide and gently sloping as it hugs the north canyon wall. You immediately see some old rock buildings, a ship boiler stranded on shore, and the top of a sunken steamboat, all remnants of the days when the ferry was active. Maps and trail guides will indicate that the River trail ends at the historical Lee's Ferry, however this is not accurate. The River trail continues for another 3 miles or so and becomes increasingly difficult to follow as some rock falls have obscured the path. We mistakenly followed this to the very end, thinking we would see Lee's Ferry, only to realize we had passed the actual ferry location 3 miles back. There is no sign designating the Ferry so it is easily missed. There are some crumbling rock structures on a sandy slope above the supposed Ferry location, but they are hard to see unless you happen to take the left fork going up the slope as opposed to the right fork going to the river. Once you see these rock structures, head toward the river (there will be beach sand) and imagine how John Lee provided safe passage for travelers to the other side of the Colorado River. This is only an imaginative endeavor as there is no visual evidence or sign to mark this historic site. Because of the ambiguity of the exact location and how the trail continues well beyond the Ferry location, I do not rate this tail highly. If you are simply looking for a nice trail hugging the Colorado River, while being surrounded by high canyon walls, this trail offers it all. Hunting for historical sites is nearly futile, but other than that, this trail is pretty (although I advise not hiking further once the trail "disappears." It only gets more difficult from there and the scenery does not change if you blaze onwards).

Do I need a permit to hike this trail?
