Pa'rus Trail


The Pa'rus Trail closely follows the Virgin River for 1.8 miles between the Zion Canyon Visitor Center and Canyon Junction.  This

path was developed as part of the plan to reduce congestion within Zion Canyon.  During peak visitor season, hikers and bicyclists

can continue along the the road from Canyon Junction to the Temple of Sinawava and encounter only the occasional shuttle bus.

Free from noise and heavy traffic, Pa'rus Trail users can experience the canyon at the pace of Zion's earlier visitors - the Paiutes

and Mormon pioneers.

Pa'rus (pah-roos) is a Paiute word loosely translated as "bubbling, turbulent stream."  With year round water in a desert climate, the

river corridor acts as a oasis, a likely place to discover signs of wildlife.

Pa'rus Trail 

The Pa'rus Trail is relatively level and fully accessible. The wide, paved trail is shared by pedestrians and bicyclists.  Please be 

considerate.  Bicyclists should ride with care - pedestrians have right-of-way.  Dogs must be kept on a leash.

Distance (round trip)   3.5 miles/1.5 hours

Ascent                        100 feet

Level of Difficulty        Easy


Warning: The river banks are easily eroded.  To help preserve the river habitat, please stay on the trail and approach the river only

at designated access points.
