Zion’s towering sandstone monoliths, slot canyons, rock formations and hanging gardens attracts outdoor adventures and intrepid travelers from all over the globe. 

Zion National Park Utah is packed with adventures and hiking trails to suit all abilities and age levels. The good news is the majority of the hikes in Zion are family-friendly!

Riverside Walk

This Riverside Walk is a super easy 2.2 mile return walk beside the Virgin River and one of the most popular trails in the park. It is the last stop on the shuttle bus at the Temple of Sinawava. 

Hike the Narrows

The Narrows is a hike focused on wading up the Virgin River, so you want to ensure you can handle it, and your kids can too. It’s one of the most popular things to do in Zion National Park, and one of two famous Zion National Park hikes.

The Lower Emerald Pool trail is short and one of the easiest Mt Zion National Park trails and leads to the Lower Emerald Pool and bottom of the waterfalls. 

Upper and Lower Emerald Pools

It looks like the rock is weeping and at the right time of year the greenery will bring out a hanging garden – one of the cool things to see in Zion National Park! 

Weeping Rock Trail

The trail is rocky most of the way but is super cool as it passes through a couple of caves and you have a good chance of seeing Bighorn Sheep – one of the famous Zion National Park wildlife!
