We took our twin 5 year olds and dogs on this trail. This might be one of the only dog friendly trails. We went early- about 8:30 and it was already somewhat crowded in the visitor center parking lot. The trail was easy, amazing views...More

This is an easy walk, and even easier if you start at Canyon Junction and walk to the visitor center, because it's mostly downhill. Whether it's early morning or late afternoon, one side of the canyon will be in the sunlight for good photographs.

This trail is paved, perfect for strollers or wheelchairs. After hiking angels landing, it was a little too easy for us but it was a nice path from the campground/visitors center to the nature center. Its also along the virgin river which is pretty.

Beautiful, paved and perfect for a great walk with a dog. Lots of places for your pet to dip in the stream.

This is an easy trail with beautiful scenery. A lot of people rent bikes for this trail. This trail is along the river. This trail is family and kids friendly.

We took this trail as a warmdown after Angel's Landing, just as something to do. It was much better than expected: lovely wildflowers, river views, saw some wildlife (prairie dogs, an elk), a less crowded and more open view of the main canyon. Takes under...More
