The most famous trail apparently...but
Jun 2021
it seems to be the most famous trail to do in Zion, it is located at the end of the canyon, last stop for the shuttle.
But the way is very narrow, you have thousand people...in every direction, it is painful in fact !
when you will arrive at the end, in the river itself ! you must walk in the water, little bit fresh, if you have kids, be careful, sometimes the water could be deep (1meter). but there are really too many people....it is completely busy in fact. I don't understand why this river is "available" for all these people....By the way, you could see lower on the river, that there are bacteria, and don't drink water...or swing inside. That is normal ! with the pollution that you have in the river upper !!
But the nature is nice to see.

Pretty Area
Oct 2020
The Temple of Sinawava trail is a mostly-paved path that leads to the Riverwalk area at the northern end of the Zion Canyon. There are interesting landscapes to see, and the walk follows the Zion River. The paved path ends once you reach the river walk. Overall, we found the Angel's Landing hike to be much more interesting and picturesque with elevated views. If you aren't going to do the Riverwalk, you can skip this hike if you have time constraints.

We visited late in the day. Note that it gets very shaded because the entire Valley is in shadows. I recommend going mid-day for the best lighting.

Zion National Park is incredibly gorgeous area. If you have time, visiting the Temple of Sinawava is a great activity.

the same is riverside walk trail
Jun 2019
when you get off from the bus stop "Temple of Sinawava", there is a trail called "riverside walk", it's about 1.5 hours round trip, not difficult, and you have to walk that trail in order to reach the start of the Narrows. But you have to check the condition in visitor center before you hike the Narrows.

Beautiful

At the end of the canyon, with restrooms and water, this is the jumping off point for the famous Narrows in-river walk so it will be very popular. If you take the first shuttle of the day you’ll enjoy the beauty of this riverside trail more. I did an optional return route much closer to the Virgin River. Trail is mostly flat and is so very pleasant.

Amazing Hike
Nov 2019 • Family
Absolutely the most beautiful place I have been. The hike was easy and there were even some people in wheelchairs/walkers. Some parts of the walkway are narrow. Nice to walk along the river or stay on the trail walkway.

You Don't Have to Hike the Stream to Enjoy the Trail
Oct 2019
Well, we would love to hike up the Canyon in the River. But . . . . it's awfully cold in there. Maybe someday.

The trail all by itself is a nice trail. It's quite level and wide. Rather longer than expected. But it ends as the Canyon narrows and the river fills it from side to side. Just a delightful hike. Keep looking up. The Canyon can be spellbinding.

Caution: there are LOTS of people. Just get used to it.

Amazing Hike--Easy Trail--Along River
Sep 2019
This is a very popular hike in Zion. It is at the end of the shuttle run. It is an easy hike and if you wish you can do the narrows part of the hike which is in the water. You can rent shoes and a walking stick in Springdale at a couple locations. It is also wheelchair accessible with a bit of help.

Nice trail for handicapped persons
Sep 2019
This is one of the trails that handicapped persons are able to use. It is in need of some repair as there are spots where the paving has buckled. It was nice, though, to be able to wheel my wife through some of the scenic beauty of Zion!

An amazing view.

The area of the Temple of Sinawava brings the canyon walls close together as you enter the Riverside Walk trail and ultimately, the start of the Narrows Trail. The day we were there, the river was raging. There was no Narrows Trail since the water was so high. It appears that doing the Narrows would still be weeks away as snow melt is still happening. Unfortunately, the falls had almost all dried up, which would have been something to see. You will be in awe.

Pretty Cool!

This area is beautiful, or course. While we were here, the water was running everywhere, and we got to see waterfalls we had never seen before. The scenery was so different than coming I the summer when it’s mostly dry. Beautiful
