The Pa’rus is probably our favorite trail in Zion for a pleasant, easy walk along the Virgin River. 3.6 miles round trip, paved and the only trail in the park that allows dogs and bicycles. Sunday afternoon was very quiet except for a few photographers along the river waiting for the sun to go down.
Pa’rus is a Pauite word literally translated to mean bubbling, tumbling waters. There are several spots along the trail that have easy river access.
We never tire of looking at this scenery.
Yesterday was cold and cloudy, but Mark and Bobbie took us on a power walk to show us the BLM land just east of the RV park. There are miles of roads for hiking and mountain biking, and the dogs can run free there. On a sunny day we will go back and take some photos. The views are breathtaking. Too bad the road is in poor shape, as it would be a great place to camp.
