Pa'rus Trail Description

The Pa’rus Trail provides an easy way to explore Zion National Park by bike. The paved, nearly 2-mile trail begins at the park's South Campground, just north of Springdale. From there, the trail heads north along the Virgin River and crosses Oak Creek and Pine Creek, so you can cool off in the water on hot summer days.

Along the way, the trail passes the park's visitor center and spur trails lead off to the Zion Human History Museum and the Zion Nature Center, all worth a stop for a richer understanding of this unique arid landscape.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in Zion Canyon National Park at the Zion Canyon Visitor Center and South Campground.

Pa'rus Trail Reviews

Ran this trail recently.Absolutely beautiful!Found myself just gazing at the incredible beauty of Zion during the run.There is a steady uphill grade from the Visitor Center to Canyon Junction.The first quarter mile of trail from Visitor Center is a little bumpy.So be careful.After that the Trail is quite smooth all the way to Canyon Junction.
