Hiking in Zion National Park
Zion National Park is a hiker’s paradise! There are dozens of hiking trails to pick from, but here are the 3 we recommend if it is your first time in the park or you have limited time.
Nothing beats the lush shaded River Walk and the Narrows out and back hike on a hot day. The first mile is a paved walk along the Virgin River beneath towering red cliffs. From there, follow the trail in and out of the refreshing river. You’ll pass beautiful waterfalls and swim holes. The canyon “narrows” the further in you go. Go prepared to be wet as negotiating the river without falling at least once is nearly impossible, but usually welcomed on a hot day!
