The Pa’rus Trail in Zion National Park is a paved, accessible trail that makes for an easy hike. We found that it was a nice trail to walk if we had an hour or so of time that we wanted to fill in Zion National Park.

The Pa’rus Trail is an accessible 1.7 miles long (one-way) trail. Pa’rus means bubbling, tumbling water in Paiute and you get good views of the Virgin River on this trail. It starts near the Visitor Center and ends northward at Canyon Junction. We did the trail backward and ended at the Visitor Center; however, I think the scenery and views were better towards the northern part of the trail (i.e., the actual end).

Here are my 7 photos that captured experience walking the Pa’rus Trail in Zion National Park with a photo-by-photo breakdown below:
