(2.2 mile / 3.5 km round-trip). Trailhead is at the Temple of Sinawava at the end of Zion Canyon. An easy paved trail follows the North Fork of the Virgin River along the bottom of a narrow, high-walled canyon. The canyon is lush, with hanging gardens, trees, and wildflowers in spring and summer. A great walk if it's hot: the trail is shady and you can wade in the river. This is also the main access to the Narrows.
Very nice walk in THE SHADE to the narrows! It was 107° the day we went but cool in the morning when we went. This would be a great option for mid day when it's warmer out! The path was nice, there are friendly squirrels (because people feed them but they're not supposed to) but they are very cute to see up close! We are from WI so this weather was horrible because we didn't have any acclimation time from low 70's. The Riverwalk and narrows would have been great when it was warmer. We did the emerald pools later though because.... we didn't know what we didn't know. Lol THAT was miserable in the heat!
