Description:

The Riverside Walk in Zion National Park provides access to the renowned narrows north of Zion Canyon, spanning 1.8 miles along a walkway bordering the Virgin River. This scenic hike offers opportunities for a refreshing swim in the river on hot days and showcases various natural wonders such as the towering 3,000-foot rock walls, pools, and maidenhair ferns clinging to the rock faces. Beyond the Riverside Walk, adventurers can explore the narrows, encountering challenges like chest-deep water and narrow canyons as narrow as 20 feet. However, caution is advised due to potential flash floods. No permit is needed for the Riverside Walk, but backpackers venturing deeper into the narrows must obtain a wilderness permit. Access to Zion Canyon is restricted to shuttle traffic between May and October, with the shuttle transporting visitors to the Temple of Sinawava, the starting point of the Riverside Walk.
