Hike

The Virgin River has many moods, from quiet and slow to a raging torrent. This beautiful, shaded walk meanders through forested glens, following the path of the stream ever deeper into the canyon.

This trail passes through Zion's unique desert swamp environment, a wet, green oasis in this generally arid country. Look for hanging gardens on the cliffs by the trail. The paved trail ends at the river, but if you are prepared to get your feet wet, and if conditions permit, you may be able to continue up into The Narrows. Always check at the visitor center for current conditions before venturing into The Narrows. Flash floods can be deadly.

The paved trail is mostly flat and accessible. Wheelchairs may have some difficulty on short steep grades. Wear sturdy boots when hiking in the riverbed beyond the end of the trail. Loose stones and wet, slippery conditions make for treacherous footing.

Roundtrip: 1.5 hours / 2 miles
Elevation Gain: 57 feet

This is a beautiful walk but there were tons of people when we went. The hanging gardens were really cool. We saw a very large tarantula on our way out. He was just chilling (or basking) on a large rock along the trail. It was kind of fun to see everybody getting excited and taking pictures with a spider.
