Walking Pa’Rus Trail in Zion National Park, Utah

Pa’Rus Trail in Zion National Park is an easy walk along the Virgin river and is a great way to spend an evening around sunset time. It offers fantastic views of the mountain ranges on either side of the canyon. The best way to get on the trail is to get off the Canyon Junction shuttle stop and walk to trail to the Visitor Center (and then take the shuttle back). Alternatively, you could combine it with Watchman Trail, and walk back to Canyon Junction from Visitor Center on this trail.
