Whatever. It is fine. It is pretty flat and pretty paved so it'd be good for mobility constraints, but with so many inspiringly gorgeous hikes, this should be at the bottom of your list.

This trail gets crowded. The canyon was beautiful and if you want to get away from the crowds on the concrete path, just head over to the river. You can walk partially to the Narrows by the river, instead of the concrete path. Our kids loved playing next to the water's edge of the river.

Visited on a cold but clear day. Views were amazing and I got lots of nice photos. Highly recommended. Also, you could continue to hike the narrows. Many do.

So even if you are not going to take the walk thru the Narrows take the shuttle bus to the Temple of Sinawa, last stop on the shuttle bus, and walk to where the narrows starts. A nice 2 mile or so walk along the river on a paved trail. Once you reach the point where the narrows starts you... More

We started the trail around 4.00 pm and many were heading towards us after having walked The Narrows. The trail along the river is flat and accessible and there are stunning views with every step. It took us around 45 minutes to reach the section where you continue across the river towards The Narrows. Definitely worth doing as this is... More

Easy hike- we saw several motorized wheelchairs on this hike. The river is gorgeous! Several in our group spontaneously decided to hike the narrows at the end of the sinawava trail... Brr! They said it was so worth the views! Thankfully there is a seating area at the end of this trail before you cross the river to head to... More

The Temple of Sinawava Trail/Riverwalk trail is probably the easiest hike in Zion NP. It is the farthermost stop on the free shuttle and worth doing first thing in the morning as it gets busier as the day progresses. This path is fully paved and easily accessible to people of all ages and levels of fitness.

Nice hike along the Virgin River with nice scenery. Got there early so not to crowded on the way out but coming back got busy with lots of people going to do the Narrows.
