ULTIMATE FAMILY GUIDE: WHAT TO DO IN ZION NATIONAL PARK
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!
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.
Upper and Lower Emerald Pool
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. The Upper Emerald Pool Trail was closed when we visited due to rock fall.
Weeping Rock Trail
The paved trail ends at a rock alcove with dripping springs. 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!
Canyon Overlook 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!
