I chose this walk because I had my two dogs with me and it's the only dog friendly trail. It's paved and peaceful. There's a little spot where we stopped and the dogs swam in the water. I wasn't even planning on doing the entire 3.5 miles but it flew by so we did completed it all.

This is a nice paved trail that follows the river from the Visitor's Center, stop 1 on the shuttle, to Canyon Junction, stop 3 on the shuttle. There is a connecting trail at stop 2 so you can visit the museum and see the movie if you wish. A lot of the trail is not in the shade so may... More

This is a beautiful trail especially as a warm up hike. This is the only trail that dogs are allowed on. It's not s super long trial and the majority of it is paved but it's along the river and there are places were you can go down to the water.

My wife and I walked this entire trail from Canyon Junction down to the Visitor’s Center at 6:30pm on a Friday night in mid-October 2016. We were almost completely alone and it took us 30 minutes or so in the cooling afternoon. The view was fabulous, the light was wonderful and it was serene and peaceful. We had suffered through...

This is the only trail dogs are allowed on in the park. Zion was packed on a Sunday but we found a parking spot near this trail by the nature center. This 3-3.5 mile round trip walk depending on what site you read is a nice, paved, flat trail. It was a beautiful fall day and bright sun and the... More

Great walk between stops 1, 2, and 3. Not a lot of shade so it's very hot. Lots of bike riders on this trail. Nice scenery.

one of the easier hikes with no climbing, but still beautiful views and you get to see the plant life up close

This trail had mixed reviews but if you are traveling with pets it is the way to go. It can be very hot so be prepared with water!! The views are beautiful and the exercise was easygoing. It was a perfect start to our vacation.

This path is fine for everyone- dogs , bikes , children, people just wanting a stroll . Well surfaced and level . There is access to the museum from part way along this trail which is an excellent place to visit
