• Riverside Walk - The Narrows - Springdale, Utah

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Exit the shuttle at Temple of Sinawava and head north along Riverside Trail. Paved, and wheelchair accessible, this 1-mile each-way trail follows the course of the Virgin River between towering 1500-ft high canyon walls. At the end of the paved trial, you can either dip your feet in the water and head back, or carry on into one of Zion National Park's most spectacular but easily accessible canyons, the Narrows, where the walls close in to as little as 25-ft in places. Trek into the canyon for a few hundred yards or a few miles it's up to you.
