Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Pa’rus Trail is a popular multiuse trail that winds alongside and crosses the Virgin River between the visitor center and Canyon Junction at the mouth of Zion Canyon.

The name Pa’rus comes from a Paiute word meaning “bubbling, tumbling water,” and the relaxing gurgle of the river is nearby throughout this hike. In addition to the river, you’ll find good bird-watching in the dense riverbank vegetation, as well as numerous opportunities to access the river."

"The Pa’rus Trail is an easy wheelchair-accessible hike along the Virgin River in Zion National Park. The only dog-friendly trail within the park offers spectacular views of the towering red and white walls of Zion Canyon. The busy hike also serves as a popular bicycle route. If you need to explore the park without your dog, consider leaving him at the Doggy Dude Ranch ([435] 772-3105) or one of the pet-friendly hotels just outside the park in Rockville. Never leave your dog alone in the car—the heat can reach more than 120 degrees in the shade."

If you're looking for something that is extremely easy on the stroller (and the person pushing the stroller) try the Riverside Walk. Emerald Pools can be done with a stroller, but not as easily. Perfect for kids 3+ and you're rewarded with a nice hike in the shade with plenty of smaller wildlife along the way. High recommended.
