Relatively a newer one and an easily accessible trail, the Pa’rus trail has been named after "bubbling water," and offers you stunning views of the park around. The best way to enjoy the beauty of this trail is to ride on a bicycle and admire its many manifestations of nature. This trail starts at the South Campground which lies just north of the Visitor Center, and follows a paved path that skirts the Virgin River in the flat and open lower section of Zion Canyon and reaches its end point at the Canyon Junction. As you ride through it, you will have to cross many bridges that beautifully cross over rivers.

Pa'rus Trail Reviews & Ratings
This trail is in the open, paved and an easy walk from the Museum back to the Visitor Center. We did it in the afternoon and it was a bit hot since there is no shade.
We did this trail using bikes with my family, but at first it appeared to be exhausting, has no shades throughout the trail, but later on we enjoyed every moment going through this paved trail. Also had a time Do with our feet in the river and spend some relaxing moments there. This is a highly commented trial for a group with small children, and we loved it so much.
It's a good, easy walk. We had four dogs(on leash) that are better mannered than most kids and still got a ton of lip from the passers-by. Just a note. If you or your kid are allergic to dogs, don't take the only dog-friendly trail in the park.
It's a nice trail but far from my favorite at Zion. There's no shade and I only saw lizards and a few squirrels. There are cyclists also using this trail, so you have to move over for them if you're walking. I did see some dogs walking on this trail, so if you brought your pet, this may be the trail for you.
The trail is badly in need of repair. They are working on it though so it is closed just before canyon junction. There are a lot of signs along the trail indicating this. We hiked up from the south campground to the museum to catch the shuttle there, but it was closed for parking lot repairs. We would like to have hiked to the next stop, canyon junction, but because of the trail closure we couldn't make it so we had to walk all the way back to the visitors center. We knew about the trail closure, but the first sign indicating the museum was closed was after the turnoff, almost to the museum. And it didn't mention there was no shuttle service nearby which would have been nice. Just bad luck for us I guess.
