Here is another great trail recommendation from Joe’s Guide to Zion National Park and this one happens to be just walking distance up the Virgin River from the Cliffrose. With summer still in full swing, this great trail is suited for just about anyone and is also bike and dog-friendly.
Named after the Paiute word for “bubbling water,” the Pa’rus Trail is one of the newer and most accessible trails in Zion National Park. It is the only trail in Zion that is open to bicycles and pets, and it is also one of the few wheelchair-accessible trails in the park. Starting at the South Campground just north of the Visitor Center, this wide, paved trail skirts the Virgin River in the flat and open lower section of Zion Canyon and ends at the Canyon Junction. Along the way, the scenery is quite pleasant, including several bridges that cross above the river, various wildflowers, and mule deer can often be spotted.
