Not a hike but a nice walk with amazing views of the canyon and multiple bridge crossings over the virgin river. The best part of the trail is that you can access it near the visitors center and quickly get away from the busy area....More

This trail is paved, perfect for strollers or wheelchairs. After hiking angels landing, it was a little too easy for us but it was a nice path from the campground/visitors center to the nature center. Its also along the virgin river which is pretty.
