ADA Accessible

Family Friendly One of the few ADA accessible trails in Zion, the whole family will enjoy the constant natural symphony provided by the Virgin River on this canyon bottom path.

Description

This paved path is a very popular thoroughfare for visitors to Zion Canyon. It is a wide, ADA compliant path that provides scenic opportunities for handicapped visitors or those looking for a more leisurely stroll, perhaps with a pet. This is the only trail in Zion that allows pets, so long as they are leashed.
